Pop Punk Returns In Sueco’s New Single and Music Video “Today”
The 2000’s pop punk sound has officially returned in Sueco’s new music video for his song “Today”.
“Today” is the first track on his debut album, It Was Fun While It Lasted, which includes tracks like, “SOS (Feat. Travis Barker)” and “Paralyzed”. “Today” encapsulates the mental space Sueco was in the night before starting his journey to sobriety.
According to Sueco:
“I got sober in the summer of 2021… I knew if I kept doing it, something bad would happen. My grandparents have a cabin in Mammoth, so I grabbed the keys from them and drove up there for a week… I wrote ‘Today’ the night before I left… The album is a journey from dark to light, going from a place of emptiness to everything being alright.”
The music video for “Today” uses stark visuals, showing Sueco now, and who he was before sobriety. The video starts with an acoustic guitar and Sueco sitting on his bed, singing in a more mellow and soft voice. The scene then switches to him outside what looks like an abandoned building with face makeup. The video continues flipping between these scenes, as first the drums come in, before the rest of the band joins at the climax, with Sueco’s voice growing louder and more aggressive. The contrast between the beginning and climax of “Today” portray the frustration and hopelessness that comes with battling addiction.

For fans of the 2000’s pop punk sound, Sueco’s album is a must-have, and “Today” is the perfect song to start the album. If you want to check out more of Sueco’s music, “Paralyzed” and “Sober/Hungover ” are a couple of my favorites.
