The Story

Chicago grunge punks the Howl jam soulfully in a warehouse in their new music video for “Jejune”—a gloomy, yet urgent number, rocking in the realm of Rise Against and Gaslight Anthem with an emo twist. “The song is about adopting a naive state of mind in hope of a happier future,” says vocalist/guitarist Sam Porter.

Diving deeper into the track, Porter adds, “I’ve put up my guard, because of the times I’ve been hurt in the past, and it keeps me from experiencing new things. If I could go back to a simpler state of mind, before I was ever burned by anything at all, embracing new things, new people and new ideas would seem much simpler. I get stuck in my ways and become a curmudgeon (something I’m trying to change). It's for letting go, and embracing the blissful ignorance for a brighter future.”
