Kiwi Jr. have shared the new song ‘Unspeakable Things’, which is taken from their upcoming album Chopper. The track arrives with an accompanying music video directed by Morgan Waters. Check it out below.
Vocalist/guitarist Jeremy Gaudet commented on the song and video in a statement:
People are always trying to sign into my email. What do they think they’re gonna find? The public appetite for dirty laundry is wild. Having moved the world online has not helped. Dan Boeckner had the idea to use the Moog sound for the hook, which was originally on guitar, and that sound brings the song into a sort of new-wave territory that was fun and different for us. We kept referencing the vibe of Michael Mann movies when recording the album, and then Morgan heard this and came up with the idea of making the video look like the movie Heat. Somehow TSN’s Jay Onrait, Jonah from Fucked Up, and comedians Tom Henry and Rodrigo Fernandez-Stoll were convinced to cameo in it. We also were wearing these hockey masks filming all day next to a busy road getting a lot of car honks and didn’t realize until much later that we filmed on an actual Friday the 13th.
Chopper is set to drop on Night Vision August 12 via Sub Pop. Kiwi Jr. previously shared the album’s title track.
