A real rollercoaster of a track, Say So! by Copenhagen-based rock band The Entrepreneurs (lead singer and guitarist Mathias Bertelsen, bass player Anders Hvass, and drummer Jonas Wetterslevis ) is sure to delight and excite in equal measure. Watch the Asger Møllsøe directed video to see what we mean.
With a wonderfully raw and almost chaotic energy underpinning the song, it pitches itself somewhere between the passionate rock of The Sounds and the snarling attitude that typified Pixies at their height.
It swirls and whirls, as if ready to career off an already wild musical path in to complete recklessness; guitars, drums and vocals taking it in turn to drive the song along with sheer, joyous abandon. It’s sure to get you on your feet and bring a smile to your face with its infectious rhythms, whilst reflecting on the more serious message to the lyrics.
The band had this to say about the video and song: ‘The Say So! video shows some of the madness featured in both the music and the lyrics. It’s a surreal story about being controlled by your emotions without having any control of your body and mind. The lyrics are about having your back against the wall and having existential doubts on who you are as a human being. In the same way, the video exhibits a group of individuals in a civilised setting broken down to the bare essence of the human being. We thought it would be interesting.’
