Dave Monks – Wild Like Me [Music Video]

Today, Dave Monks of Tokyo Police Club dropped the music video for Wild Like Me.
The leading single is taken from the sophomore solo album, I’ve Always Wanted To Be Me which is due out later in 2021 via Ghost Pepper Records.
Getting a 80s synth-pop dance vibe tune and cool dance moves in the music video too.

About the track:
“In my daydreams, I know exactly what I’m doing.
When I write a song, it’s on a hallowed guitar, on a clear misty morning and I pick out the undeniable tune I’ve always been destined to sing.
And I know exactly what I’m doing when I step into the studio. When I take that step, it is in correctly weathered boots that compliment my correctly vintage outfit.
And I know exactly what I’m doing when it shows up in your Instagram feed, via one of those record labels that, when mentioned, elicits a silent nod of approval.
My bulletproof image appears on your phone and proclaims: I know exactly who I am!

You probably have your own version of this fantasy. But pretty soon, it doesn’t hold up.
Whether it’s through something beautiful or difficult, we learn that life is too precious to spend it as anyone other than our true, complicated, messy selves.
You bare your heart and chase your dreams because this is your one chance and you know it. That’s what being “wild” is to me.

“Wild Like Me” was a stab in the dark that took me to a place I wasn’t expecting to go. Which, along with making a choreographed dance video, had me flying in the face of that comforting daydream every step of the way. The video was choreographed by my girlfriend and I in my living room and filmed around Toronto on my phone.”
