This Wild Life is giving fans their take on blink-182’s iconic ballad, “I Miss You.” The cover, featuring Oliver Baxxter of Broadside, is on the duo’s dynamic new release, Never Fade. And today, they are sharing their nostalgic music video for the track. 

Reminiscent of blink-182’s original music video, This Wild Life’s version is set in a darkly-lit house decorated with candles, velvet curtains, and a grand chandelier hanging above. The visualizer focuses on the bandmates’ performances as they pay homage to the song’s emotional lyrics. When Baxxter joins in during the second verse, these emotions are even more palpable. Fans can tell that the song is meaningful to all of them.

Posting a snippet of the video on Instagram, This Wild Life shared the creation process with their fans. Their love for DIY projects knows no bounds, and this video is no exception. 

“We wanted to recreate the iconic blink-182 Music Video with a minimal budget, so we built a miniature set and green screened ourselves in,” the caption reads. 

This isn’t the first time the band has designed their own props and sets. In 2022, vocalist Kevin Jordan built a giant GameBoy prop to work as a digital backdrop during their performances. He shared the process with fans in his 7-part TikTok series. From blending the right paint colors to programming the television screen built into the GameBoy, the band’s hard work paid off. The set for “I Miss You” is no exception. It immerses viewers into a whole new universe where blink-182 and This Wild Life collide.
