Brooklyn indie rockers Nude Beach are releasing their third album, 77, October 21st on Don Giovanni Records. Today they released a new music video, watch "For You" above.
This video was entirely written, directed, and animated by campers at the 2014 CMA Summer Art Colony in New York City. These talented kids created the whimsical music video, outfitting the band with cardboard instruments and creating a story about a dog and his hard luck. The kids even get a little trippy and weird, creating watercolor swirl effect backgrounds and delightfully unsettling animal masks to dance around in. Playing on these fake instruments gives the band a puppet-like quality, which fits in well with the theme. It's an amazing project that showcases the creative and strange imaginations of children.
The song itself has a light, classic rock influence to it. It has a Beach Boys vibe throughout and the bright chords match well with the upbeat, positive lyrics.
77 will be out October 21st on Don Giovanni Records. It is currently available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon. For more on Nude Beach, including news, music, and tour dates, check out their website.
