Bent Shapes’ very good sophomore album, Wolves Of Want, came out earlier this month, and now they’re sharing a video for lead single “New Starts In Old Dominion” before they embark on a two-month-long tour around the US. As frontman Ben Potrykus explains to BrooklynVegan:
Our video for “New Starts in Old Dominion”, shot with our pal Evan Murphy, follows a fictional Bent Shapes as they head to a house show. Having accidentally left our guitarist, George, (played by George Francis Steinhardt IV) behind, they recruit an unwitting attendee (Luke) to play our set with us. George goes on an epic journey to find the show, and hilarity ensues. Will he GET TO THE GIG?”
It’s not as dramatic as that description makes it sound, but it is charming enough to be worth a watch, which you can do below.
Wolves Of Want is out now via Slumberland Records.
