KIWI JR. Unveil Video for ‘Gimme More’

With their music heavily drenched in the influences of the city that surrounds them, Kiwi Jr. have shared visuals for Gimme More.

Kiwi Jr 2020 press shot

This Toronto-based four piece are doing serious things for my ears right now and I’m digging it. An inventive band ripping punk apart and sellotaping it clumsily back together, Kiwi Jr. are certainly ones to look out for in 2020.

Ahead of the release of their debut album, Football Money, out on the 17th of January, the band have treated us to a video for the LP’s track Gimme More.

Speaking of the video, Kiwi Jr. say:

It was shot mostly at our favourite bar in Toronto – Black Dice Café. It’s a rockabilly bar and though Kiwi Jr. is very unhip in 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).

The video was directed by Sean Foreman who adds:

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.

Catch the band live at the following dates.

29 – London, The Waiting Room
