A new video, a new in-store

“Something is Not Right With Me” is the first video featuring a song from the forthcoming Cold War Kids LP Loyalty To Loyalty due out September 23, and you can watch it below. The video itself is in the typical black-and-white style that is their preference, and simply features scenes of the band recording and practicing and goofing around while wearing ties. We even get a shot of bassist Matt Maust doing a bit of silk-screening as he is known to do from time to time. I’ll fully admit that I didn’t get this song the first time I heard it at Sasquatch, but pumping the audio into my headphones has changed my mind about it. Through Johnny’s guitar and Willet’s voice the the song’s title is made manifest, and for the entirety of it’s short 2 minute lifespan it seems to exist at the edge of breakdown.
The Cold War Kids are rolling through the Showbox at the Market later this month on the 29th. For those of us die-hards like me who can’t make that showtime, at 6pm earlier that same night, they’ll be doing a free in-store at Easy Street Records. I will definitely be there.
