Canadian trio Scenic Route To Alaska are hitting and getting beaten in the wrestling ring in their new video “How It Feels.” If you ever wondered whether three musicians could beat a professional wrestler, then this video has the answer. Smearing folk elements onto the indie rock soundscape, the trio strikes your reward center with an exhilarating punch. Watch the three suffer below:

“How It Feels” is from their upcoming album Tough Luck, which will be out on March 9th. Although the video is about wrestling that you should never try at home, lyrically the song talks about the struggles of finding love when you’re hustling like type A maniac. Whether that is touring incessantly across four countries in two weeks (yup, these three did it) or pursuing whatever goal, there isn’t simply enough time for romance. While Scenic Route To Alaska know that all these hustling is the source of love deficit, ironically enough, they’re gonna start touring again. Go wrestle with them:
