Toronto’s Kiwi Jr. are excited to announce worldwide release of their debut album Football Money, via Persona Non Grata Records, who turned heads with Pip Blom’s debut EP in 2018.
Football Money will come out worldwide on January 17th, 2020, following a March 2019 Canadian release on Mint Records, best known for releasing early recordings by the New Pornographers, Neko Case and Lou Barlow.
Today the band share the video for their single “Salary Man.” A virtual explosion of power-pop, the track, like the full LP, was engineered by Aaron Goldstein, and mixed by Holy Fuck‘s Graham Walsh.
Of the video Kiwi Jr note, “after the fall of civilized society, all that’s left is a future rife with radioactive dogs and the remains of parties that never really took off. Clad in suit and tie and unable to part with their old routine, our hero wanders aimlessly through debris and clean up crews, searching for the remnants of something compelling and desirable.” The clip was directed by Ben Rayner who says: “putting together a perspective for this video, I wanted it to be fast paced, low budget, tongue-in-cheek, and highly personable. What we ended up with is ‘Salary Man.’” Watch the video here
