Along with a new single, Kings of Leon have also dropped the music video for “Supersoaker” today. In our initial post on the song, Michael mentioned how even though the band has definitely moved on from the “Southern Strokes” tag, this song actually does sound a lot like the Strokes, and the video reminds me of them too. We’ve got pretty standard rock video tropes here: the band is playing, often mugging for the camera, while surrounded by beautiful woman that they never seem to notice. Thanks to an Instagram-esque filter the video gains its modern twist, ironically, by how dated it looks. Check it out below and look for the band’s new album this fall.
Mechanical Bull is out 9/24 via RCA.
