The wildest shit about this video is how it nails every vibe—both real and imagined—about Planningtorock. Firstly, she hangs out with The Knife and for all we know those guys spend weeks putting a single black line on a canvas and then selling it for a million dollars in-between making some of our favorite jams of the last whatever many years. Secondly, she made some pretty straightforward music, and "Living it Out" is a great example. It's a staccato stringed song that we can only describe as "bouncy." Here's the video directed by Planningtorock herself that nails the creepy, arty vision of her we always had in our heads, but paired with a natural pop instinct.
