Toronto’s the Junction have just released their newest music video “Awakenings,” the first single from their upcoming third album Grievances. The entire video is made up of stock archival footage from the 1930’s featuring bustling city streets, frantic workers, traffic jams and endless skyscrapers. With lead singer Jackson opening the song’s lyrics with “you’ve got a right to live the way you want, but I’ll take it slow,” one can imagine the message to take away from this video is that as much as we think things have changed in the past 80 years, they really haven’t. Same shit, different day (or decade for that matter). Grievances drops March 6.
Be Sure and check it out.
