Young Rising Sons want to take you to “(Un)Happy Hour.” The Brooklyn act released a music video for the bubbly track. With a catchy chorus and bright guitars, the indie-pop rockers are tapping into a sound that’s almost nostalgic while reflecting on past experiences.

It follows the band throughout New York City and how they can go from feeling great with a full box of pizza to being down in your feels once it’s all gone. Partnered with contrasting lyrics to light dance rock instrumentals, Young Rising Sons recreated the eclectic indie-sleaze sound.

Vocalist Andy Tongren exclusively tells idobi Radio about the idea behind the music video. “Because ‘(Un)Happy Hour’ fixates on the dichotomy of timing, we wanted the video to reflect that.” He continues, “At times we find ourselves stuck in the monochrome mundane, and other times, we see the world in vibrant color as though we’re living out a fever dream. The ‘(Un)Happy Hour’ video juxtaposes the existence of both of these worlds in our ultimate search for happiness.”

Fans can catch this song live on their upcoming run with Diva Bleach, Lemondrop, and 44Blonde. Grab tickets through their site, and check out what cities they’re stopping in below:
