In anticipation of their upcoming full-length, The Home Inside My Head, pop-punk band, Real Friends released a single titled “Mess.”
The self-declared Illinois sad boys, share the same angsty sentiments in this song as we’ve seen in their previous releases. Frontman Dan Lambton sings, “I’m still a lost boy. Last year I was a trainwreck, now I’m just a mess.”
Every once in a while, Real Friends reference other bands in their songs. They’ve mentioned Jimmy Eat World in “Skin Deep” and American Football in “Home For Fall,” and now their latest single talks about Death Cab For Cutie. “Every once in a while, I listen to Death Cab and think about how it used to be,” Lambton belts out.
The accompanying music video was recorded during the band’s recent $5 tour and is just what one would expect from a tour video. Check out the song and video, below, and let us know if you see yourself in the clip.
