….Giving Up, duh!!

Pretend everything is going well and it will. If manifest destiny just always happened the way you wanted it to, we’d never have a meaning to put behind the phrase. Let’s get with it and follow Giving Up as they’re rarely “OVERDRESSED IN UNDERWEAR.” Smoke out nostrils always. Fleeting drawings of this and colors. Mirages are for the dreamers. Begin the adventure. And animations, edits, and directions by Mikie Poland forever. Pre-orders out the ears. Doin’ splits with Saralee (Boston two-piece music machine). Sophomore Lounge surpasses tons of student AND musician hierarchy. Cute bits licking your ears in flashes of popped-out tents made of luau button-up shirts surrounded in a cloud of pink. Giving Up ARE playing real instruments in this video for “OVERDRESSED IN UNDERWEAR.” You’re just imagining them wearing clothes. But why? That curly hair (!!!!) and Adam’s apple. Basically, if you want to scope ‘em IRL, and see if they really DO only wear undies, you’ll have to catch em on tour. Tour dates below (not to grip on News swaggery):
