Street Stories release video for ‘Just Like In Fairytales’
Shillong three-piece punk band Street Stories have just released a music video for their song ‘Just Like In Fairytales’. The song had featured on their EP The Apple And The Clown and is a song about how some guy wants to be with this girl and he wants it to be like it is in fairytales. The video of the song features the band sitting around and lyrics appearing in places and then moves to the band playing on stage and isn’t a super-interesting video as such.
