Texas alternative rock band Northern National is back on the scene with their newest music video for their recent single "MoneyBlind." Fans can watch the music video now by using the media player included with this article and download the single on iTunes.
The Dallas-based quintet is still relatively new to the scene, having formed in August according to their official biography. But they've wasted no time in getting their sound out to as many music fans as possible, having released their debut EP entitled The New Age in September. "MoneyBlind" is the band's first single since the drop of that EP, just as they're working on their first national concert tour.
Northern National are certainly moving quickly to start up their career but they're breaking in with some impressive credits to their name already. "MoneyBlind" is produced by Dan Stringer, who's worked with the likes of X Ambassadors and Imagine Dragons. The band has already performed on the same bill as Andy Grammer and Echosmith, too. But Northern National's stylish new video and catchy single are entirely their own.
In an email statement to AXS, the band described "MoneyBlind" as "a warning to not get caught up in chasing success and money. In those moments you lose sight of the loved ones in your life and sacrifice what is important to you for fleeting happiness. That’s something that we’ve watched people go through and the song is a tale of a man losing sight of what’s important for fleeting joy. When he finally realizes he’s lost what really is important, he’s too prideful or too stubborn to admit he was wrong and start over. Instead, he’s lost in that success and stuck with something he thought was going to fulfill him and doesn’t."
That's heavy stuff for a music video, and if that's the kind of storytelling that this band is doing, Northern National will be an act to watch now and in the future. Luckily for audiences, they're headed out on tour throughout June.
