Canceling out the noise around him.
The song is about self-improvement and Rex aspiring to be a “ten”. He waxes about how he’s been a “five”, but how he has some positive things going for him. He talks about his struggles and how they had him down, but how the positive aspects have helped him get through it. Rex has such a unique voice that is heartfelt and pained, and this really helps hammer home the song’s lyrics.
Jamming out in the kitchen.
The music video begins with Rex sitting at his keyboard and putting on his headphones. He’s wearing white chucks and a red hoodie, perfect for a lowkey day at home. His headphones cancel out the noise of everyone else in the house around him, as he starts playing the keyboard as the song starts. He then gets up from the keyboard and heads into the kitchen where he dances and sings with the headphones still on. He heads back into the living room, now clad in a yellow Spider-Man suit. There’s a shirt dance break until the lights flicker and Rex is now jamming out on a guitar. He sits back down at the keyboard and ends the song by taking off his headphones. The sounds of the room and all his houseguests come in, as the video ends. This video is a great representation of the headspace one can get in when they focus on their art, which fits with the story of the song. Rex Orange County is always doing something different, interesting, and heartfelt, and this video is no exception.
