New Jersey-based indie pop-rock duo Brick + Mortar talk about American drug culture and partying on their new single “Saturday Night.” The two previously released the song back in August and now they’re ready to share the accompanying music video exclusively on AXS. Though the song looks at American drug culture, its infectious groove and catchy hook makes you want to dance all night.
The video focuses on a grizzled, haggard-looking man dancing around half-naked in a field. Throughout the clip, he gradually cleans up and is soon sporting business clothes as if he's ready to get back to work. Watch it above.
Speaking about the video Brandon Asraf says “We worked with Sami Joensuu who wrote and directed this video. It’s a performance video of sorts where one character represents all those who party on the weekends and return to 9-5 grind. The perfect representation for Saturday Night’s ode to drug culture.”
The song comes from Brick + Mortar’s first full-length album, Meta Meta Etc., which came out last month. It marks their first independent release after teaming up with subsidiary labels, such as Photo Finish Records, for singles and EP for a decade. They actually started working on the album in 2015, but legal issues made things take a little longer. The previously released the EP Dropped, in 2015. Grab your copy of Meta Meta Etc. here.
