Ahead of the January 17 world-wide release of their highly infectious debut album Football Money, Kiwi Jr. has shared a video for the LP’s “Gimme More.” The video debuted via Glide who notes, “one of the most raucous tracks on Football Money. Bringing to mind the garage rock revival of the early 2000s with a 70s glam vibe, the song is a jangly rocker that features shouted group harmonies with an infectious chorus. The song is accentuated is flourishes of electric guitar, offering up a refreshing reminder that straightforward rock and roll bands are still out there.”
Kiwi Jr will be playing in New York City at part of the New Colossus Festival on March14/15 and have UK shows later this month. All dates are listed below.
All natives of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Kiwi Jr. are now based in Toronto and much of their songwriting is informed by the city that surrounds them. They have spent the last 5 years honing their craft both in the studio and live, including opening spots with Wolf Parade, New Pornographers and Alvvays.
