I can’t decide if naming your band Weed is brilliant or lazy, but it seems to be working out well for the Vancouver gloom-rock trio. We premiered their excellent new album Running Back this spring, and now they’ve dropped a video for one of the tracks, “Thousand Pounds.” Directed by Courtney Garvin of The Courtneys, it’s pure ’90s grunge grit — angular, off-kilter shots of a group of dudes hanging out in a park, doing dumb, adolescent stuff while doodles dance across their faces. Watch below.
Running Back is out now via Lefse. Get it here.
