Premiere: NZ's Mini Simmons drops the clip for Kids Off Broadway ahead of Aus tour
The New Zealand blues-rock four-piece will be coming our way this April.
If you're yet to be acquainted, Mini Simmons is a four-piece group from New Zealand specialising in this nostalgic, blues-infused rock brought forwards to the future, mixing it with pop mannerisms and hints of soft indie in the process. They're currently on the road to their debut album expected sometime this year - more deets on that one soon - but in the meantime, they've been teasing its release with a pair of sensational singles thus far - Kids Off Broadway, and its more hook-centred follow-up, Southern Cold.
They're coming to Australia next month with dates yet to be announced, but to celebrate, they're today premiering the video for the album's first taste Kids Off Broadway, uniting the single's guitar-driven sound with grainy, washed-out visuals that further deepen the song's nostalgic feel. "It doesn’t take much for us to get fired up. Shooting the Kids Off Broadway video was essentially us capturing the usual Mini Simmons live energy antics on video," says the band on the video, hinting at their energetic stage presence worth checking out for yourself when they're in the country this April. "What started as a play-along video to introduce the band, quickly divulged into all sorts of ridiculous moments culminating in us tangled up in some pretty compromising positions, exactly how we imagine a kid on Broadway being like. We also managed to jack a pretty rad 61 Chevy Impala which got some heads turning as we rolled around and shot some B roll footage that’s been sprinkled in."
It comes at an exciting time for the group, with their cult-following audience slowly growing bigger and bigger as they cross into the Australian market too - something their debut album is sure to only further accomplish. Watch the video below:
