Published Jan 25, 2017Toronto's Goodbye Honolulu may fall into the "slacker rock" category, but they're hard workers when it comes to churning out new tunes. The band's latest release will arrive next week with a single called "Mother to a Brother," but Exclaim! is giving you the first listen to the song, along with the first look at its brand new accompanying video, right now.
The Ben Roberts- and Jaek Eastcott-directed clip is a vintage-looking homage to partying like a rockstar, complete with sparklers, a piñata, pink satin jackets and plenty of beer.
"We drew inspiration from rock'n'roll folklore, and the infamous hotel parties that were thrown back in the good ol' days," the band tell Exclaim! "The video's like a hangover, it leaves you with a lasting taste in your mouth, a sweet, sweaty, beer soaked taste that lingers long into the next day."
"Mother to a Brother" will get released on January 27 through Goodbye Honolulu's own Fried Records label, and the band will be celebrating with a show that same night at Toronto's Smiling Buddha.
