Winona Fighter is back with a brand-new video for their upbeat punk-rock song, “Subaru” via Rise Records. The video harkens back to modern comedy classics including Anchorman and Wayne’s World.

Vocalist Coco Kinnon says, “Dan [Fuson], Austin [Luther], and I are never not having a little laugh so it was really awesome to let our natural selves shine on set. We took inspiration from our favorite comedy shows and movies growing up. From Anchorman (a movie that came out when we were kids) to I Think You Should Leave (a show that has us in a choke hold as adults) we were in a melting pot of Winona Fighter humor.”

She continues, “Absolutely cracking up at any and every take. Is there a big meaning behind the video? I’d say it is whatever you interpret it to be about. I think this music video shows the most true side of the band which is that we love what we get to do so much and we are going to have fun with it whenever we can.”

Of the song’s inspiration, Kinnon explains, “‘Subaru’ was truly never written to be as important as it is… but during our most recent tour, the amount of people who told us it’s their favorite Winona Fighter track was crazy. The fans really made me have a whole new love and appreciation for it so we’re extremely excited to re-release ‘Subaru’ into the world. My literal hand-me-down Subaru got me from New England to Nashville, Nashville to Los Angeles, Los Angeles back to Nashville, and through a multitude of tours when Dan and I had just started playing together. She deserved a song.”

She elaborates, “Austin and I wanted to tap into that nostalgic feeling with late 90’s/early 2000’s punk instrumentation plus a dose of satire, fun, and ‘leave your hometown’ lyrics.”
