OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD. OH.MY.GOD! Okay, okay, this is NOT a drill! Waterparks stans, it’s here- it’s happening! The band’s greatest masterpiece yet has been unleashed into the world, and we’re FREAKING OUT!
Before we even dive into what is probably the most incredible music video of all time (don’t @ us, you’re about to see why that’s true!), let’s talk about the song! ‘Numb’ is off of Waterparks’ upcoming album Greatest Hits, and no, it’s not because it’s full of the band’s already released “greatest hits,” nay-nay, we’re getting all new songs that are for sure going to be the best songs the band has ever released (judging by how dope the already released singles are). It was released as part of ‘Waterparks Wednesday,’ which, lucky for us, means the band will be releasing a new single on Wednesdays leading up to the album. And that also means we’re sure to be blessed with a few more singles before we receive the holy grail that is the album on May 21st.
‘Numb’ is going to end up being a staple in playlists all around the world- it already is in ours! With clap-back lyrics like, “You’re like The biggest scummy, bummy, dummy, ugly motherf**ker cause you can’t look past caps or the jokes I make because you hate to laugh. You’re too cool for me cause, motherf**ker, I look good today. Self-care, green hair, looking cute today” and “You only like me whеn I’m numb. Now I’m mad about—I don’t know what. All I know is that this isn’t fun. The more I wrap myself up, thе more I’m coming undone,” it’s hard not to fall in love with this song and even further in love with Waterparks.
Now, we all know that every incredible song deserves an equally exceptional video, and we get that with the ‘Numb’ video and more! It’s energetic, high-paced, hypnotic, and, most importantly, fun! The whirlwind of colors, the genre-bending beats and lyrics, and organized chaos all came together to create flawless, 90s-techno visuals for fans to dive into and enjoy. Not to mention the Parx boys are killing it in the style department. *heart eyes* They look fierce and fabulous, or in their own words- they look cute today. Waterparks are always intentional with their music and videos, but this one just looks like it was a lot of fun to film! Oh, and this video is the first to rack up such a high number of views in its first week (it’s been just a few days)! It’s already up to 360K at the time of writing this, and it continues to grow!
So, get with the hype, and check out the video below. Don’t forget to go stream the single here!
Every time we watch this video, we get so hyped! It gets a 15/10 on The Honey Pop scale of awesomeness, which isn’t an official grading scale (YET), but it gets us even more stoked for the release of Greatest Hits, which you can pre-order here. We have high expectations that this will be an album full of the band’s greatest hits!
