Betrayal, judgment, paranoia, and eventual resignation sit at the heart of Sean Boot’s latest single, “Soon I’ll Be Moving On”. The theme of love falling apart is nothing new to music, but Sean’s quirky take flips the script on the listener: it’s what we imagine our significant other thinks and says about us as we leave the relationship. Though, it doesn’t have to be a romantic one.

Sean Boots chose to put himself in his former bandmates’ shoes. For him, the angry block chords and accusatory lyrics reflect how he imagines them feeling when he left Amateur Lovers. “It’s like you’re already gone,” he charges. It’s an honest, refreshing look at an artistic trope.

Between the cinematic scope of emotions and virtuosic acting embedded in Sean’s lyrical delivery (“we’ve already passed judgment day”), the song feels lifted from a larger, staged work. There’s a sense that there’s more to the story in the funky rock musical. With the band members (or significant other) still clinging to faith, can they overcome their resentment and win back their frontman (lover)?
