Waterparks kicked off their exciting new era earlier this year after a series of the most cryptic Instagram posts we’ve ever seen. Their recent single ‘Self Sabotage’ dropped last month, and it has been on repeat every day since! This era has featured Waterparks’ chaotic energy that we are used to with a new, more mature sound that has us craving more. But thank god, they recently dropped their music video for the single and it was everything we needed. We don’t know about you, but everything from the video concept to the visuals has us going from regular parxies to hardcore parxies.
The ‘Self Sabotage’ music video demands your attention. With the vivid imagery and killer song, once you click play, you cannot look away! Although, this is truly nothing new for Waterparks. It seems everything they make, whether it be a new song, intriguing music video, or simple TikTok, is sprinkled with pixie dust before it’s shared with the world.
Do you see what we mean? There’s pixie dust everywhere! The opening scene of this music video is something we believe could not be more perfect. Most music videos start with some dramatics to set the scene before the music starts but not here. You’re in Waterparks world now! From sunrise to sunset, you will be wrapped up in Awsten Knights’ silly antics and seemingly unhinged personality.
Throughout the ‘Self Sabotage’ music video, we get an inside look at Waterparks day to day on tour. We see the band from sound check till showtime and watch them all be themselves as they hang out backstage. Erik Rojas directed this music video and made it feel very personal, which corresponds perfectly with the song’s diary-style lyrics. This vlog-style music video feels as if you’re watching clips from a movie or your own memories on playback. ‘Self Sabotage’ is only the tip of the iceberg for Waterparks’ new era, and we are dying to see the rest!
