Published Jul 17, 2015Milwaukee trio the Midwestern Charm dropped their debut album Growing Pains earlier this year, and they're keeping the momentum going with some new visuals for album cut "With a Lime" — and Exclaim! has got the exclusive premiere.
The track showcases the band's straightforward and instantly likable approach to delivering high-energy, kinda lo-fi power pop, but the video is a much more elaborate affair.
It opens with a scene between a nagging mother and her slacker son, who escapes his suburban home prison, gets brainwashed by a mind-controlling killer be and hits the town to make his way to a concert. Along the way, things take a dark turn with imaginary machine guns getting fired and garbage being eaten before our protagonist finally arrives at a Midwestern Charm house show.
Things get even wilder once the band starts to play. Watch all the crazy action go down in the clip for "With a Lime" in the player below.
Growing Pains is out now on Texas Is Funny.
