Getting over your ex is tough, but I The Mighty just made things a whole lot easier. In a hilarious, new music video, I The Mighty urge listeners to sit back, relax, block your ex on Instagram and watch and learn from the true professionals.
In a new music video for “Pet Names,” I The Mighty lists out the 21 steps to properly (or improperly) get over your ex. Sure, some of these tactics might not be the healthiest of coping mechanisms, but we are definitely guilty of one—or seven. With a touch of humorous flair, the band acts out the 21 steps on the screen, all while hitting us right where it hurts.
“Everyone has gone through a rough break up at some point,” vocalist Brent Walsh says. “While the song deals with sorting through that relatable process in an unhealthy way, we thought it would be fun for the video to do the exact opposite, giving you our 21 step process for getting over a rough break up.”
“Pet Names” is from I The Mighty’s latest album Where the Mind Wants to Go / Where You Let it Go. Released in October of last year via Equal Vision Records, the song itself carries an irresistible pop melody. You can pick up your copy of Where the Mind Wants to Go / Where You Let it Go here.
Additionally, the band are opening for Don Broco and playing a few shows in the U.K. for Reading and Leeds Festivals. Check out the dates they are playing below.
