Los Angeles-based, but internationally sourced four-piece rock band Night Lights met in 2012 while at school in Boston and have since been working to carve out their own niche of fun, danceable indie rock. Comprised of Mau Jimenez on vocals and guitar, Yusuke Sato on guitar, Jeff Kinsey on bass and Dag Hanken battering away on the drums, the group released their debut EP Here We Come in 2014 and are gearing up to release loads of new music in 2016. They just released their new song "Childish" and we are happy to premiere the fun video for your viewing pleasure.
The video is much more than just a still shot of the band playing in some practice space, they try and tell a story. The band takes a back seat to the short tale of a couple who have fun with their relationship, by determining who has to do chores around the house by playing pranks on each other and fighting it out with nerf guns in the yard all in good fun.
"'Childish' is about the realization of how we all so easily act extremely egocentric and childish in order to get our own needs met. We do the stupidest things when we feel that other people get in our way, and when we think that we are at the center of the universe/the world revolves around us, rather than seeing life through a wider lens and embracing the bigger picture," says Hanken about song and video.
"The music video is a spin on the word childish, with a newly married couple trying to find new and fun ways of getting chores done in the house. We tried to catch the dancey and childish feel of the song, and to not take ourselves too seriously. The selfless and tedious chores in life can be quite okay if you attack them together, and look at them from a new angle.. It's all about perspective!"
