The Bennies form their own political party in the clip for Dreamkillers
Desperate times (banning beers) call for desperate measures (entering the Australian political market).
In some sort of dystopian timeline, Australia tries to ban beers. Luckily, in the video for one of their latest cuts Dreamkillers, The Bennies have our back. The Melbourne punk crew are one of the funniest groups in the game, with their witty lyricism and banter always proving a classic, something which continues on their Dreamkillers video clip. So, how do The Bennies attempt to stop a nationwide ban on tinnies? The form their own political party, strutting around the nation on a campaign tour backed by their popular album cut.
The Bennies' new record Natural Born Chillers is out today via Remote Control/Pool House Records, and it's an eight-track odyssey that explores their now-adored punk-rock sound, maintaining the witty funniness that The Bennies have bloomed off while also creating something quite mature and complex in comparison to their past stuff.
