Hamilton’s Billy Moon pumped out a collection of blistering garage rock tunes on That Which You Can’t Throw Away in April, following up today with a video for the EP’s track “Roads”.
This particular single stands out from the rest of Billy Moon’s latest work of fast-paced garage rock tunes for it’s drowsy melody and lyrics chocked full of self-doubt. The song questions the decision to pursue life as a musician, pondering what life would be like as a “normal person”. The visual accompaniment is simple enough to echo that sentiment.
Set on a trashy trailer park as antiquated animations play overtop, the video reiterates the worry associated with the life of an indie-rocker, wondering if they are destined to live a life of shambles, stuck in their childhood dreams while the rest of the world grows up and moves on.
Or as the band puts it:
“My new video for ‘Roads’ can be summed up as if Ryan Lochte went to Burning Man but no one wanted to hang out with him.”
