The alternative rock band We’re No Gentlemen have released a music video for their new song “Promises.” The music video follows the story of an underage teen trying to sneak into a club to watch the band perform. This story arc brings about a theme of passion and rebellion in society. The video begins depicting We’re No Gentlemen in a club, the stage surrounded by laughing and cheering fans. The aura of the scene is energy-filled and thrilling. Meanwhile, a young man tries to sneak past a guard and into the club in order to watch the band. He fights with the guard, and then hops a fence to sneak in through the back. The music within the song is strong and smooth, yet rough with the lyrics that are weaved in between guitar solos. The female-front of the band, Amanda Gabel, sings of a fake world filled with promises that are never kept. This reveals a much darker twist to the song, making it more emotional and intense. The teen is finally able to get into the club and to the front of the stage, where Amanda allows him to jam out on the stage with the whole band. Overall, the music, as well as the video, brings about a spark of determination as well as a little bit of rebellion.
