Indigo De Souza releases video for new song ‘You Can Be Mean’

It’s the final single from the singer’s upcoming album.

Indigo De Souza has given us the final sneak-peek of her upcoming album, ‘All of This Will End’, out 28th April via Saddle Creek. ‘You Can Be Mean’ is a scathing takedown of a fuckboy, who De Souza parodies in the music video directed, shot and edited by the singer herself. “I wrote ‘You Can Be Mean’ about a brief toxic experience I had with a manipulative and abusive LA model fuckboy. However brief, it had a life-long impact on my understanding of self,” Indigo explained in a press statement. “Leading up to that experience, I had a history of putting myself in toxic situations and pining for validation from people who treated me poorly. I was stuck in some delusion that I could help abusive people through their trauma and teach them to love me in the way I deserved. I wrote this song when I finally realized that I could choose not to allow harmful behavior into my life, and that there is a deep, deep importance in protecting the body and spirit. I stopped caring about validation from assholes, stopped thinking it was my responsibility to help them, and started caring for myself in a real way.” “Once I made that switch in my psyche, I began to manifest truly loving, safe, kind, and communicative people into my life. Being loved in the way I deserve begins with loving myself in the way I deserve. Boundaries are so important. The body is a sacred and fragile thing and it deserves every ounce of care.” Indigo De Souza will be playing a huge amount of dates throughout 2023, both as a headliner and supporting Sylvan Esso and Japanese Breakfast.
