Pissed Jeans - The Bar Is Low

Back at it with their fifth studio album Why Love Now, Pissed Jeans doesn't disappoint. Their first single "The Bar Is Low" presents a comical music video where you can see the band at the gym unsuccessfully trying to use exercise machines. The imagery ties flawlessly into the symbolism for the real theme of the song in which they talk about men who have enough privilege to have a comfortable life without putting in the work for it. This is an amazing take on one of the issues dealing with gender relations and what drives men. Matt Korvette, the lead singer, has worked to create lyrical content that paints the picture of what society deems as a "decent" male explaining how the effort is minimal with the lyrics "I never steal, I never fight, My anger is locked up tight". This song has an amazing message that we love here at Hunnypot and this satirical music video is the icing on the cake! 

Pissed Jeans is from Allentown, Pennsylvania where the goal was to create music focused "on dead ended carnal cravings, sexual depression...that sort of thing" according Korvette. They were hugely influenced by punk bands from the 80's which is an oasis to modern rock lover's ears. Now signed to Subpop, they have dedicated fans who love their content and continue to follow them.
