twenty one pilots "Truce" Video Reviewed

Tyler Joseph











twenty one pilots released a music video for their song, “Truce”.  It’s a beautiful piano ballad that’s heartfelt and tender and gut wrenchingly sad, actually.  For a while when listening to the album, I’d skip the tune because it was just too emotional.  However, I now can appreciate it in all of its wonderful musical brilliance.

The video features Tyler Joseph, the frontman, playing a piano in a street.  If anything, his manic depression is extremely evident here.  That’s something I adore him for; he does not hide his weakness and his condition, he reaches out to those in a similar situation and helps them.  Now I’m one of those people who generally hate seeing the “omg u saved my life” posts on band’s websites, but this man is truly, in more than one way, a hero.  He’s an individual who is not exploiting mental illness, but empowering and helping those who deal with it.  It’s beautiful and he does it simply through music in a way that so few can really accomplish.

You can clearly see his passion and how much power he puts into the song, and it made me a bit teary-eyed.  It’s beautiful, to see someone care that much and stand behind everything they’re preaching.  His voice is smooth and comforting, soft and warm.  It makes the song special, and unique, opposed to the other work on the record.  It’s so gentle and feels like a response to a cry for help, it’s a strong shoulder to lean on and cry on.

“Now the night is coming to an end; the sun will rise and we will try again,” is the line that opens it up.  “Stay alive, stay alive for me,” is the most poignant and powerful line.  It gives me chills every time I hear it and matching it with a visual through the video makes it even stronger.

twenty one pilots are extremely revolutionary, and are capable of so much.  This video was a perfect way to close 2013 and open up a chapter of positivity and happiness in 2014.

“You will die but now your life is free; take pride in what is sure to die.”
