The video features playful film of the HATE DRUGS loading up their van and going on a drive. The chemistry amongst the group and their shared easygoing, positive vibes are on display. The single is from the band’s newest EP, Ponderosa. In February 2020, the group spent a weekend at a cabin in the Sierra Nevada mountains where they wrote and recorded the entirety of the EP. “These songs were born in the warmth of an old wooden cabin, as we watched the snow softly float into the arms of the giant mossy pines outside,” explains lead singer David Caploe. “It’s the beginning of a new chapter for us, and everyone, really.”
