Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun aka twenty one pilots, have released yet another song and music video off of their upcoming sophomore studio album, Blurryface. “Stressed Out” is a cute, adorable video with a rather dark and emotional song.
The music video is laced with childhood memories such as tricycles, Capri Suns and the boys’ actual childhood homes. In addition, the Josephs and Duns all appear. But the song goes on to talk about how life changes. The families are shouting at the duo, “wake up, you need to make money,” implying the pressure we have now as adults from our surroundings. It was all so simple once but now it’s all about jobs and money. Tyler sings, “wish we could turn back time to the good old days. When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out,” in the chorus.
“Stressed Out” will most likely hit a nerve with the audience because it is something almost everyone can relate to. The pathos that is portrayed throughout the video is very powerful and puts me into a state of flashbacks of my own childhood.
twenty one pilots never ceases to amaze me with their talent and creativity. Blurryface is going to be an album that blows people’s minds, take my word for it.
