Published Jan 06, 2020Following the Canadian release of Football Money last year, Kiwi Jr. are giving their latest effort the worldwide treatment. And ahead of the record's re-release on Persona Non Grata Records this month, the Toronto indie crew are hitting us up with a new video for album track "Gimme More."
Speaking of the clip, Kiwi Jr. had this to say:
It was shot mostly at our favourite bar in Toronto — Black Dice Cafe. It's a rockabilly bar and though Kiwi Jr is very unhip to that scene, we tried to pay it justice by wearing leather jackets. We've had probably every band meeting we've ever had at that bar, and the owner Hidecki was nice enough to let us shoot there as long as we didn't break anything (which we did during load in before we even started shooting).
The video was directed by Sean Foreman, who explained, "We wanted the video to feel like it was based off dream logic. Things don't make sense, the band keeps popping up, rooms are oddly connected somehow, it's nonsense but at the same time there seems to be some undercurrent of reason guiding things."
Watch the "Gimme More" video below.
