Published Jul 19, 2016Edmonton outfit Jesse and the Dandelions will release their latest LP True Blue later this year, but before the full thing arrives, Exclaim! is giving you the first look at a brand new video for "No Fun."
The clip draws inspiration from bandleader Jesse Northey's childhood figure skating ambitions — an activity he gave up after getting harassed for his choice of extracurriculars. Thankfully, that gave him more time to focus on his musical passions, but he's nevertheless paying homage to his past in the new video.
It sees Northey lacing up and hitting the ice in purple spandex with a pair of blade-less back-up dancers. Their grace is mirrored in the gently rolling ballad, and accompanied by additional footage of Northey performing on an array of musical instruments in the arena locker room.
True Blue is out on September 9, but right now, you can watch the video premiere of "No Fun" below.
