Mr Little Jeans, 'Good Mistake'

Don't let the precious name fool you. Mr Little Jeans, a.k.a. Norwegian singer Monica Birkenes, makes propulsive, sometimes epic pop music with gnarled synth lines and alluring textures. In this brand new Mr Little Jeans video, for the moody song "Good Mistake," a trucker hopped up on meds finds himself traversing the haunted backroads of his past.

While the narrative for "Good Mistake" isn't immediately obvious, the imagery pulses with regret and yearning. The song "was written from a perspective of having done my fair share of mistakes," Birkenes tells us via email. "The biggest mistakes were keeping myself in situations I should've been able to pull myself out of but somehow didn't until something forced me to. It's a reminder of what we are capable of doing and capable of changing in a lot of cases."

The video was conceived and directed by Ian Schwartz and Cooper Roberts. "Good Mistake" is from the debut full-length from Mr Little Jeans, Pocketknife, out now on Harvest Records.
