Ready to bring the energy back to pop-punk? Well, welcome to Kansas City’s Keep True and our exclusive premiere of the group’s new “Living” music video. The band only formed in the summer of 2017 yet have already come so far, with the release of their debut EP Digging Up Bones, which has built an anticipation in their hometown scene and beyond.
Keep True stay true to a raw, pop-driven sound with a DIY flavour that aims to connect with the audience one song, and one performance, at a time. Regarding the new EP and where the Digging Up Bones title comes from, the band said, “‘Digging Up Bones’ is our attempt at trying to bring back the classic sound of pop-punk that forged the genre 30 years ago. It’s about heartbreak, holding grudges, letting go of them, and growing up. The name was chosen because that saying really embodies the whole concept of these songs collectively; digging up old emotions that you wish would stay buried, but somehow keep working themselves up above ground again.”
About the song, “Living,” the guys further elaborated, “The song presents the emotional roller coaster of losing someone you really need to keep going in life. It is about being grateful for the time you’ve spent with them but also know that time was far too short. The chorus has a cinematic wideness to it and lyrically it is extremely vulnerable.”
