 Speak And Dress Video

Small Reactions

Sofaburn Records

This video is a lot of fun. The band have fun smoking, shoplifting, then pelting a cop with eggs at the end. It was directed, filmed, and edited by Avery Newmark Kincaid, with additional filming by Adam Kincaid. I like the editing, very jumpy and lo-fi. 

The song is about starting to be an adult. The sound is very 70s new wave, like The Cars, but it also sounds, to me, like Game Theory's “Curse Of The Frontier Land” and “24,” which has some of the same themes as “Speak And Dress,” about being a newly minted adult.

Anytime I can compare a band to Game Theory, one of the best, means the band is very good, and “Speak And Dress” is one of the best songs I've heard all year. So watch the video, and get their album New Age Soul for some updated college rock greatness.
