WATCH: Joyce Manor “Fake I.D.”

In anticipation of their upcoming full- length, Joyce Manor released a single and accompanying music video for their song “Fake I.D.” The video looks like a scene straight out of Superbad.

(I was more focused on Adam Levine’s hair than his vocals though. This was when he went…
