Mikal Cronin, “Change”

Mikal Cronin just released his sophomore record MCII last week on Drag City, and with it comes the delivery of a video for the full-bodied and heartbreaking song "Change". Everyone's been at this kind of house party: bodies crushing into each other, a lively band delivering the energy, people making out in corners. But no one quite knows the pain of being at a house party like this while actually being invisible. A young, hoodie-wearing kid can't seem to fit in anywhere at the party because he simply can't get recognized. It's a tragic little tale that ends with a happy flip, and contributes all the more to the cathartic, nerve-touching nature of the song.
