Happy Trendy - “January 6”

It starts with you in the morning.
On a bus to a new town,
you said this was the only way out.
Barely slept last night,
half awake, eyes half closed as the sun hits your face.
Is it all you imagined?
Well, you left it all behind, thinking nothing was left for you
All the things you remember,
All the people you’ve met,
All the faces you’ve known are gone.

Obligatory post today across all social media today because this song is too good and it’s January 6.

My mom told me that she enjoyed the video.

I know I said earlier today that I’m not the biggest fan of music videos, but this one for Happy Trendy’s “January 6” is another one of my favorites. It’s a great track, and the aesthetics of the video match it perfectly.
