The video which was directed by directed by hometown Monterey native Alex Ramirez. “Ramirez fuses his gritty and kinetic video style with the bandsexplosive performance. The video captures a simplicity which strikes at the vein of raw unadulterated fun”.
Check out the video here:
The band will return to their hometown of Monterey (where the video was also filmed) to play a video release show on Friday, December 14 at Wave Street Studios. They will be joined by Y Axes, Santa Cruz’s The Shoobies (who are all featured in the video) and an acoustic set by Alex Ramirez. It would seem an appropriate night for this town to host many of it’s musicians and artists it birthed.
Their upcoming self-titled EP was recorded by Grace Coleman at the venerable Different Fur Recording Studio in San Francisco, CA. The EP permeates a lust for life with each track. “Waste Me,” the opening track is a jolt of adrenaline and details the exploits of youth and recklessness. The second track, “Bad Reputation” is about how past mistakes can follow you into new beginnings. “Palms” is a neurosis filled love song, filled with exuberance and uncertainty. The desperation of “Riptide” is a plea for stability and hope that a bond is real. The closing track “Jaded Summer,” is a bitter-sweet summer anthem celebrating new love and all its flaws.
