“Penniless Fools” is the new single from indie-pop-singer-songwriter Jessicka. It’s a cynical commentary on the American Dream dedicated to those “working so hard to eke out a living just to maybe get that one vacation from the grind.”

From the artist: “I describe the themes in my music as coming of age mixed with coming to terms with reality. My lyrics can get heady and dark, so I like matching them with propulsive rhythms and sharp hooks, letting my left-of-center influences combine with my love of pop music.”

“Penniless Fools,” today’s SOTD, is worth your time for the cinematic music video alone.
