Glam, melancholic pop punk rockers NEVER BETTERS are set to release a split with fellow London, Ontario band GRIEVANCES on March 16th. To celebrate, the band has just released a new song and video called “Pictures”.
All members of Never Betters have been involved in the Southwestern Ontario punk scene for a while and split their creative energies between other current projects such as: Strange Ways, Wasted Potential, Foam, and Grievances. When prodded the band identifies as post-pop-punk which reflects the band’s ability to evade definition.
Here’s the director, Just Krar’s, inspiration for the video:
“The video for ‘Pictures’ portrays common narratives we go through in life. Heartbreak, finding autonomy, shitty relationships, and reckless choices come to mind. Often the nostalgia felt for these memories is influenced by movies, TV and music, rather than our own actual experience. Pictures allow us to have our own story, not someone else’s fiction.”
