Canadian indie-emo project Year Over Year (aka solo musician Dorian Pintaric) has released the official music video for “Charm.“
“‘Charm’ is one of the last songs I wrote for The Love We Think We Deserve. I think the minimalism instrumentally provides a showcase for the lyrics. In all aspects of this song I felt like I really wanted to get the point of feeling complacent and mundane. From the imagery in the music video to the lyrical content and even the simple guitar melodies, I just wanted this painful feeling of ‘I hate how mundane my life is’ and ‘why doesn’t anything I do make me feel’.”
I think the actual plot lines for the ‘Charm’ music video are all playing with the idea of complacency. Either breaking the complacency through self harm, or existing within it showcased by the overgrown flowers or the scene of myself doing a photo shoot. My favourite scene would have to be the one with our friend Gabby turning away from the stove just above her shoulder. I just think it’s such a beautiful scene.”
