Toronto indie rock five-piece Midday Swim are gearing up to release a new EP and in anticipation, Exclaim.ca is pleased to premiere the band's new video for "Summer Eyes."
The band's sound combines "a hard-hitting rhythm section with lush pop melodies and dreamy atmospheric guitars," drawing inspiration from the likes of local heroes Broken Social Scene.
The new clip was directed by L.A.-based filmmaker Noam Kroll and is set in a mundane office. It stars vocalist David Krygier-Baum, who livens things up a bit after heading outside to face autumn's impending wrath. A colourful paint war ensues between members, proving that — as the band puts it — "fun can be found anywhere and summer is a state of mind, not a season."
Midday Swim will be releasing their debut full-length in 2015, but for now you can check out the brand new video for "Summer Eyes" below.
The band will play Toronto's Piston on January 8 and you can follow them on Twitter here.
