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.
This Thursday, The Sidekicks will kick off a tour of the Midwest and East Coast. Tickets for all dates are on sale now. Tour dates are listed below.
