The Pains of Being Pure at Heart shared the music video for “So True” the fourth single from its recently released fourth album, The Echo of Pleasure.
The song “So True” is about two young friends, Ylva and Olga, who find different ways to resist the crippling oil wealth and conservative bourgeoise “niceness” of their native Norway, through direct, leftist political action and/or just getting fucked up a lot. But it’s also ultimately from the perspective of how I am older, married with a daughter and incapable of chaining myself to an oil rig or passing out in the park because I have things I need to do and people to care for. I could never be “so true” as all that. Watch below.
