Chris Farren – “Say U Want Me” Video

Underground punk god Chris Farren — of Fake Problems and, more recently, Antarctigo Vespucci fame — is gearing up to release his debut solo album of original (not Christmas themed) material. The hilariously-titled Can’t Die is out in September, and “Say U Want Me” is its bouncy and charismatic lead single. It’s about how insecurity and anxiety don’t magically disappear when you’re in a stable relationship, and the accompanying music video shows the side effects of what happens when you need constant reassurance. “So now I’m on my own again/ Why can’t I bare to be alone with myself?” Farren asks over his characteristically forward-driving power-pop. Watch and listen below.
