LA band Milly takes us through the struggles of a suburban teen in their latest single and video “Birds Fly Free.” Directed by Justice Vaughn Ott, “Birds Fly free” starts out by capturing the nostalgic suburban adolescence that many of us experienced growing up. But things take an eerie turn when paranormal forces kick in and we end up witnessing a life-and-death scenario that feels comical, kinda nightmarish, and somehow relatable:

Lyrically, the track is about a completely different topic. According to frontman Brendan Dyer, “‘Birds Fly Free’ is a full send off on those that I’ve wronged and those that’ve wronged me. Writing this song served as an act of forgiveness in a time where I was really unhappy with the people I considered closest to me in my life. It feels like saying goodbye with an overarching sense of finding freedom.”

The track is from Milly’s upcoming EP Wish Goes On, which will be out on April 9th via Dangerbird Records.
