South Carolina pop-rock brother duo Practically Paradise (aka vocalist Steven Bolin and drummer Reed Bolin) have released their new single and music video “Nyquil.

The track tackles substance abuse and addiction as coping mechanisms for a breakup.

Steven explained, “’Nyquil’ is essentially about coping with a break up in very unhealthy ways. Something I used to do a lot. Luckily since then I’ve grown and developed much healthier coping mechanisms. Overall the song is about how hard moving on from a breakup can be and the way that we deal with it. From drinking alcohol to consuming over-the-counter drugs to help not feel the heartbreak, we have to cope in some way, shape, or form.”
