The Scarlet Ending, a six piece indie/pop-rock band reigning from Syracuse, New York premiered the video for new song 'My War'. The track is the first single from their new EP, The Things You Used to Own, which just dropped on Aug. 14. "It's noisy (in a good way) hard rock with discordant riffing, thunderous percussion and pretty piano melodies to temper the mix. That's all anchored by the strong, assertive vocals of Kayleigh Goldsworthy and her identical twin sister Kaleena" - Noisecreep.
Kayleigh Goldsworthy told Noisecreep about the song and its inspirationThe music scene in Syracuse, New York is a snow globe that has been turned upside down and shaken by a new sound. That sound is coming from The Scarlet Ending, a six piece band that is stretching the confines of genre. Loosely defined as indie rock, The Scarlet Ending offers a blend of pop with cabaret, the grit of dive bar rock with the charms of three part harmony. This unique personality comes through in the angelic yet unforgiving voices of sisters Kaleena and Kayleigh Goldsworthy. These two command the stage while playing piano and guitar respectively, in addition to violin, melodica, and a pawn shop of other instruments. The theatricality of the girls is supported with a backbone of innovative musicians. Guitarist Jon Tedd and Cellist Jess Hafner compliment the layers of sound while Bassist Aaron Garritillo and drummer Nick Streeter syncopates and carries each song to their full potential.

Kayleigh Goldsworthy told Noisecreep about the song and its inspiration
"It's about struggle, not one specific instance, but an overarching theme. While writing 'My War,' I'd moved to Brooklyn but was still going back and forth to Syracuse for rehearsals, shows and recording. It was all really stressful. I think the weight of working so hard for 12 years was really starting to wear on me and the song is me trying to figure out how to maintain some control while so much around me is changing. The feeling that creates is vulnerability and paranoia, so it was very easy to allude to the victim/bully relationship; the battle of who and what is right and wrong."
