Today's

The Internets is filled with stuff, so much stuff it seems like a job just to keep up with it all. Here at Super-Id, we like to keep it simple – one thing, whether it’s a photo, video, song, or whatever, they we think you should fucks with. We call it Today’s…

SomeKindaWonderful “Reverse”

Apparently men can be hoes and disloyal too. “Reverse” from Cleveland band SomeKindaWonderful is my new favorite shit. The song. The video. The name of the band. The concept. Everything. I’m lovingly loving it. It so over-the-top, you can’t help but sop it up with a biscuit.

Let’s start with the name of the band – SomeKindaWonderful. I can’t decide if the name is brilliant or bullshit, and that fact cements that fact that it’s brilliant for making you take a moment to actually examine the name of a band in an age where most band names are simply moronic. Point for SomeKindaWonderful.

Next up is the song. It’s about a remorseful, yet unrepentant, cheating recidivist. Most men’s kryptonite is boobs and ass. For black men, it’s a big butt and a smile. For SomeKindaWonderful, it’s legs and long hair. It was just a sleepover. Basically, it’s not his fault. When is it ever a man’s fault that he finds himself getting some strange? Exactly

Last up is the video. I just saw the teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s Hateful 8 and the music video for “Reverse” resonates strongly. It’s SO dramatically over-the-top. We got clouds, and smoke, and mist, and fog, x-ray body images, Sin City-style color correction, explosions, birds, lots of bird {I’m guessing ravens, because ravens are the most dramatic bird right next to eagles and vultures}, SomeKindaWonderful band members playing their instruments dramatically, slow motion {everything looks better in slow motion}, tears, rainstorms (in reverse, of course) with purple lightning, and umbrellas, a band member playing the tambourine dramatically and of course, in slow motion, a beating heart beating to the beat, and finally a butterfly and a caterpillar. You need a drink after watching this shit. It’s amazing and fucking awesome. I love it. I watched the thing twelve times in a row. The producer, director, DP, and editor all must have just graduated from film school and illegally download Adobe’s Creative Suite package and were firm on the fact that they were going to use every filter and tool available to them and fit it in this video. Fuck what you think!

I can’t tell if SomeKindaWonderful is serious, semi-serious, trolling, or oblivious. Frankly, I don’t give a shit. I don’t care the lead singer looks like he could lead a separate hipster faction with an eye on taking over Brooklyn. I don’t care. I’m 100% on SomeKindaWonderful, because they are just that.
