The Sidekicks Share “Weed Tent” Music Video


The Sidekicks have released the music video for their new song, “Weed Tent”. The song appears on the Ohio based band’s forthcoming album Happiness Hours, which is set for a May 18th release.

With its collage-like aesthetic, the “Weed Tent” video perfectly captures the playful yet piercing spirit of the song—a hooky piece of jangle-pop laced with falsetto vocals and sprawling guitar work.

“Weed Tent” embodies the more purely melodic yet sonically complex sound of Happiness Hours, which is the fifth full-length from The Sidekicks. Produced, engineered, and mixed by John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Kurt Vile), the album ultimately “feels like a potential collection of singles, every one of them a pop song, every one of them meant to make you feel good,” as vocalist/guitarist Steve Ciolek notes.
