Just a quick heads up to fellow pop-punk fans: head here to stream what’s set to be one of the best releases in the genre this year, and check out the video below.
Narrative: A kid grows up and gets ready to leave home.
Performance: In a garage. Perfection.
Song: One of the catchiest celebrations of nostalgia since “Good Riddance.”
Why You Should Watch It: This one’ll either hit you right in the chest, or it won’t. It’s a simple look back on a dude’s life as he gets ready to move away. Nothing spectacular about the photography or concept – in fact, Saves the Day tackled similar material with the classic video for “At Your Funeral”:
Much like the beefy, down-to-earth pop punk they play though, whatever The Swellers’ video lacks in flash, they make up for in heart. If you’ve ever lived in a small town, had band practice in a garage, or had trouble saying goodbye, you’ll instantly connect with this. You might even have a few hairs stand on the back of your neck at some point.
Either way, good luck getting the song out of your head.
“I miss it, too…”
