While this video, shot on 8mm film by Tony Shilling, is meant to look straight out of 1993 or so, you can easily say this would fit in with the innocence of Portland, Oregon of 2016, or the innocence some say is slowly fading away. Then again, if you head to any part of Portland, you’ll see teenagers rocking their Bad Brains and Operation Ivy T-shirts so this video from Risley is very much now as it was back then. The song is taken from the band’s debut album that is meant to reflect at ones youth, a reflection that is sure to be felt by anyone who is looking forward to getting older and wiser. Michael Deresh and Travis Stanek were able to find a group of actual friends who weren’t afraid to participate in this music video and it’s a nice piece, from whatever perspective you view it.
