Brisbane surf-garage-punk band Concrete Surfers, today releasing the music video for their latest track 'VCR'. The video consists of some tasty VCR footage of the band with a timeline switching between a portrayal of them as babies in 1998 and the present day.
The concept behind the film clip, while abstract, paints a picture of what you can expect from this band. The witty video follows a story of the band finding an old video tape in a field and realising that it contains embarrassing footage of themselves as youngsters. Frontman Jovi Brooks explains, "the idea behind the video is that you are always being watched and documented, even if you didn't realise at first".
The video was filmed in regional QLD in and around the home of Swan Pond Studios where the band had just finished recording their upcoming EP and was filmed and directed by band-friend Harley Jones.
Concrete Surfers are launching their single at Bloodhound Bar in Brisbane on the 7th of July followed by an appearance at Beach Sounds Festival in Lennox Head.
See the video below and be sure to pick up tickets to see the band at the single launch.
