Published Jan 19, 2016The relatively new Calgary pop quartet Milk Toast are unabashedly twee, from their soft pop arrangements through to the posts on their excellent Tumblr page. That said, there's still a tongue-and-cheek edge to their music — they did, after all, call Pee Blood Records cassette Your Band Sucks & Punk's Dead. Following its arrival, they've now shared their first music video.
Milk Toast chose cassette highlight "My Boyfriend Went to New York and He Didn't Invite Me" as the soundtrack for their debut video, and it works wonders with the VHS clip. Co-directed by band members Kelly Pleau, Keaton Pridham and Nick Sawchuk, the video follows Milk Toast and their pals while they frolic in fields and watch planes arrive at the airport.
Like the song itself, the video is both low-key and charming. Watch it below.
If you live in Calgary, you can also catch Milk Toast's cassette release party at Good Luck Bar on January 21. More information on that is available here.
