In a new music video, indie artist Katie Toupin, formerly of the group Houndmouth, puts a somber twist on the Blink-182 song “Dammit”. Far from the pop-punk original, her cover manages to be down-tempo without being sleepy. Toupin’s vocals are almost ‘singing in cursive’ while she maintains a pleasant, bright tone.

The music video is just as interesting as the laid-back cover. The picture pans back and forth from the mother figure in the past to Katie being alone in various places in the future. The black veil towards the end of the video is a not-so-subtle sign that she covered this song as a tribute to a lost loved one. Both the music and imagery reflect a much darker theme than the original tune, which was about a band-member’s fictional breakup. This fittingly grown-up version of “Dammit” speaks to a universal experience we all have, or will, go through.
