On May 4th Milkk released their music video for their song “90’s Baby” from their newest album “Headrush” that came out earlier this year.
The song captures what it’s like to be a 90’s baby from the inside, the parts of us that they don’t see. They expect us to be fine, we show that on the outside but we really aren’t. But I feel that goes for everyone no matter the generation. But for now we’re focusing on 90’s babies.
My interpretation of the music video is that the chains is meant to represent us being locked inside of our minds with our bad thoughts, we’re stuck within our mind with the thoughts that hurt us the most. The weight of the chains are too heavy to lift to be able to escape.
I think the paint is meant to be heavy, like a heavy feeling; I think that’s meant to represent the drowning feeling when the chains get too heavy for us to take so we feel as though were drowning in all of our feelings, gasping for air, for something fresh that’ll save us.
One of the lyrics is, “But I’m breaking down and still stuck with the curse, I don’t really, don’t really know what to say, get out of my head, it’s too much to take.” would correlate with the feeling of drowning and the feeling of being weighed down and stuck from the chains.
These aren’t facts about the music video, this is how I interpreted it. You can watch the music video below when you click on the video. Don’t forget to comment how you interpret the music video and the song itself.
