YouTube/Winnetka Bowling League
Earlier this yr, Winnetka Bowling League’s Matthew Koma and his wife, Hilary Duff, teamed up with RAC for an update of Third Discover Blind’s pop gem “By no plot Let You Traipse.” It felt esteem a distillation of the pair’s musical prowess: Duff’s gilded vocals and Koma’s penchant for harnessing honeyed melodies. On his band’s most original single “Kangaroo,” the melodies are correct as candy, coupled with crunching chords and a gigantic beat.
Something as candy as “Kangaroo” deserves an equally candied video, and on Wednesday (Could perhaps well presumably also 6), Winnetka Bowling League unveiled what that may presumably well presumably stare esteem. Naturally, it appears to be like esteem a spell binding couple of minutes of homemade ingenuity.
Essentially the most original in what’s become a brand contemporary wave of necessarily DIY visuals, Koma and his WBL bandmates recorded their parts individually due to conclude-at-dwelling orders for the length of the realm pandemic. That plot no excessive-gloss ideas, no longer even esteem the quartet used to be in a arena to drag off in the goofy “CVS” clip from earlier this yr (which naturally starred Duff as a retailer worker).
She stops by for a cameo in this clip, too, correct on time when Koma shouts her out, calling her “a wife who’s got an even bigger job” and who “backs me and my indie rock.” The the relaxation of the video’s three minutes are spent getting cozy with endearingly lo-fi dwelling props, younger folks’ toys, fanny packs, critical particular person decor, and the esteem. It shows correct how creative artists bear gotten with no topic’s lying across the dwelling — and no topic they’ll change into big ambiance for a shoot.
The clip used to be “directed (from dwelling)” by Zack Sekuler. Take a look at it out in corpulent above.
