Hailing from Brooklyn, Best Behavior is an incendiary four-piece garage pop band comprised of songwriter and lead vocalist Alex Gruenburg, Jon Mann, Chris Jimenez, and Daniel Jacobson. Taking cues from ’60s British Invasion bands and laced with rich harmonies and surfy, reverb-drenched guitars, their debut album Good Luck Bad Karma has garnered praise from both fans and critics.
Deeply rooted in high-energy rock and roll, Best Behavior reintroduces sounds forged by bands as diverse as The Kinks, The Velvet Underground, The Beach Boys, The Who, and recent acts like The Strokes and Tame Impala, and they’ve amassed a devoted following in New York City thanks to their electrifying live show and Gruenburg’s honest, clever songwriting. Having played sold-out shows at venues like Irving Plaza and supported bands including The Darkness, The Struts, Pains of Being Pure At Heart, and Gang of Youths, the band has also cut its teeth on the festival circuit, including Brooklyn’s own Northside Festival, CMJ (NYC), Mondo (NYC), Musikfest (PA), and Savannah Stopover (GA).
Set in Coney Island the video for the bands catchy new song “Say” follows a young girl through a less than perfect day as she skips school to experience all the boardwalk, beach, and Luna Park have to offer. The video was directed by Stephen Michael Simon – who was nominated for a VMA for his work on Kygo and Selena Gomez video for “It Ain’t Me”.
