The track follows their debut single “Disappear” released in April. Pastel Stereo has developed a strong following across social media. Joining Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter only recently they have made their phone number available to fans; “People can text us and we have many WhatsApp groups. Fans send messages and keep in touch a lot!,” says the band; “Discord is the biggest chat platform atm, there we have PASTELLERS pastel stereo group, with nearly 2.000 followers and growing every day. We have weekly live video chats with people following us. A lot of new friendships have been born there!” they share.
Diving deeper into the idea behind the song the band says; “it’s about insecurities and not knowing how to convey your feelings for someone into words. Everyone knows how awkward and in retrospect ridiculous adolescent love and relationships can be. This song gives off serious teen movie vibes. The person in the song is trying to make his love interest fall for him and trying to make her laugh by acting like a fool.”
The music video is directed by Eric Rojas (Jessie J, Chase Atlantic, Waterparks) with cinematography by Mike Koziel (ASAP ROCKY, NOAH CYRUS, XXXTENTACION) and was shot at Bombay Beach in California.
Talking about the video the band says; “We shot the video in 6 hours. There was a place that looked like an abandoned city with dilapidated and deserted buildings and cars and spray paintings wherever you looked. It looked like a place that could easily be featured in a horror movie.When the video footage was ready we drove back to Los Angeles and held a memorable party in Hollywood. “
