Denver DIY rockers Homebody are set to unveil their latest LP Skin and Let Live today (June 12), and to mark the occasion, Exclaim! is giving you the first look at the band's brand new video for "Above the Fray."
The track shows off the band's knack for post-punk with a pop twist, while the video itself introduces the viewer to a protagonist — who is also a real life superfan of the band and the video's creator — named Michael. He wanders the streets of Portland with his Walkman, playing drums on any surface he can find.
A press release notes that "as the sole submission received for the band's fan-made music video contest, Michael's effort was the obvious selection for official music video."
You can see that submission now and follow him on his percussion-fuelled path through Portland by watching the video premiere for "Above the Fray." Scroll past the band's upcoming tour dates and hit play to give it a look.
Skin and Let Live is out now via Heretical Objects.
