LEAVE IT TO
Milky Chance to be the warm sun rays on an otherwise rainy afternoon. To be the almost thirst-quenching breeze at the peak of a festival’s heat. To be the sashay in a world of shuffles.
Since their first album release, Sadnecessary, which contained hits such as “Fairytale” and “Stolen Dance,” the German duo’s music found its way into my glittered heart, and shows no signs of leaving. With authentic positivity and intoxicating reggae/folk/electronic rhythms scattered like rose pedals, Milky Chance has the ability for me to stop and think, “yes – maybe things will be okay.”
In their latest music video, “Bad Things” off of their sophomore album Blossom, the duo teams up with British singer Izzy Bizu to deliver a hopeful message in a visually clever manner. “Bad Things” was inspired by the paralyzing feeling of being stuck in the same circumstance.
AS CLEMENS REHBEIN STATED
“It’s a tiring, going-around-in-circles tragedy. In the end it’s always up to you to find the way out, but this song is a shout out to that person who’s always there whilst you work it out.”
Now if that doesn’t make you feel all warm and fuzzy, then I don’t know what will.
The video, in its simplicity, reflects the sentiment of the song: two pals walking down life’s road – taking in all of the ordinary beauty. Izzy Bizu’s lovely presence in the video only adds to the lighthearted feel, with her strutting, twirling, and seeming quite content with her own personal journey.
So grab a buddy who’s helped you through the tough times of the past, and who’s in for what’s to come, and check out Milky Chance’s latest release.
