What is it about rock musicians imagining themselves as old men today? First, it was Faith No More, played by senior-citizen actors and seen rocking a nursing home in their “Sunny Side Up” video. And now the members of the Real Estate side project Alex Bleeker & The Freaks have dyed their hair grey and slapped on aging makeup. In director Richard Law’s clip for “The Rest,” a laid-back and sun-baked amble from the album Country Agenda, Bleeker and his band appear as older gentlemen who come back together for long enough to play together in an empty theater. Watch it below.
Bleeker & The Freak’s new album Country Agenda is out now on Sinderlyn.
