Kiwi Jr reveal video for “Gimme More” — track off upcoming album ‘Football Money!’ World-wide release of LP January 17

Ahead of the January 17 world-wide release of their highly infectious debut album Football Money, Kiwi Jr. have shared a video for the LP’s “Gimme More.” The video debuted via Glide who note, “one of the most raucous tracks on Football Money. Bringing to mind the garage rock revival of the early 2000s with a 70s glam vibe, the song is a jangly rocker that features shouted group harmonies with an infectious chorus..The song is accentuated is flourishes of electric guitar, offering up a refreshing reminder that straightforward rock and roll bands are still out there.”

Of the video the Toronto-based band told Glide, “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).” It was directed by Sean Foreman who states, “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 “Gimme More” here
