Oakland native punk rockers, SWMRS just announced they signed to Fueled By Ramen and they’re re-releasing their debut album “Drive North” with two brand new bonus tracks! The band also put out a lyric video for “Lose It” as well as a full music video for “Palm Trees” directed by singer/guitarist Cole Becker.
The new single “Palm Trees” talks about how the industry takes advantage of and exploits young artists, and the video contrasts everything we’ve seen from SWMRS videos in the past. “Our music videos are typically more fun and colorful, but we wanted to do something a little darker to convey the manipulator/manipulated dynamic in the song. It’s an interesting juxtaposition, given our recent signing to Fueled By Ramen,” said Cole.
Watch the video for “Palm Trees” below.
Don’t forget SWMRS are supporting FIDLAR this Fall on tour as well as headlining a couple dates on their own. Get your tickets while you still can!
