On The Floor Right Now
As I grow slowly older and the scene remains ageless I love seeing what disparate influences bubble to the surface. It’s almost always unexpected. For all the scribes opining on the massive influence of your Nirvanas and whatnot, it turns out that kids are actually taking cues from bands like The Rentals instead. Shot through with a jolt of whimsy, this little video from The Welcome is a quick burst of midwestern fun for your Friday morning. It is harmless fun — not debauched rock sleeze or overstuff pomp — just a couple kids breaking free from monotony on a motorcycle and cruising around town. And honestly, at the end of the day, sometimes that’s all you need. Good job, dudes!
