UK pop/punk band Victory Lane takes us on a trippy adventure through their mind in the music video for their newest single, “Happy Sad,” off their upcoming Barebones EP due out July 26.

The music video follows front man Dan Lamb as he grapples with the happy and sad thoughts in his mind.  From a third-person perspective, Lamb watches himself exist in both moods, peeking into the happy and sad rooms of a house where a cheery party is happening around him. It isn’t until the end of the music where Lamb walks into the happy sad room, accepting the fact that both emotions exist.

Of the music video Lamb says, “‘Happy Sad’ is a song about finding solace in feeling happy whilst ultimately accepting you also must be sad, I wrote the song from the perspective of a third party seeing me cope with my moods during taking anti-depressants. Eventually I came to realize that living in a limbo state of happiness and sadness was not natural and I gradually took myself off of them and began to deal with my natural state.”

Formed in 2015, Victory Lane is a four-piece band compromised of Lamb, Dan Rowbottom, Lewis Crawley and Dec Lawrence. They’ve cultivated a major following, restlessly playing shows around the U.K. and putting a twist on traditional pop punk.

Barebones marks the band’s second EP following 2017’s Louder Than Words, but it’ll be their first for Standby Records.
