Orangeville, Ontario plez-rock four-piece Falcon Jane released their self-recoded sophomore album alive n well last summer, and now Sidewalk Hustle is pleased to premiere their video for “The Bad One” their reflective soft single. As singer Sara May explained…
I wrote this song while someone I loved was treating me like a suspect. I was being labelled as a bad person and I wanted to find out why.I was a bad kid when I was little. My best friend and I were rule breakers, bullies, vandals. The people around us hated, feared and avoided us. I thought I had grown out of these traits, and steered myself onto “the right path” as I got older.This song is about self-realization. It’s about seeing someone else’s perception of you when you look in the mirror and trying to make sense of it.
Directed by Marco K Baldonado, the video is has an eerie nostalgic feel. As Baldonado revealed…
We somehow manage not to get hurt by the skin of our teeth. The footage was captured on a dv camera.
There’s a lot of ways you can read the video but what I think it tries to capture is all the fun and games of being young plus the moment when you’re 6 beers deep and you wonder whether you’re too old for this shit.
