Los Angeles’ alternative rock/post-punk/guitar pop outfit Dear Boy – comprised of Ben Grey (lead vocals, guitar), Keith Cooper (drums, vocals), Austin Hayman (guitar, vocals), and Nils Bue (bass, vocals) – is flying high after critical acclaim for their most recent release, their sophomore EP Parts Of A Flower. And they’ve got more goodness from that collection for us, as we’ve got the exclusive premiere of their video for “Alluria”.
The upbeat – but poignant – single sets the tone for the black and white video directed by Baley Wynn. Each partaking in some form of mundane activity in a hotel room, there is a sense of boredom that lurks throughout the video. But it also highlights the fact that musicians are people and – hilariously so – that anyone can be a part of their own rockstar dream.
“We wanted the video to be a living rock photograph,” admits Ben Grey. “Those 1960’s stills of rock & roll bands in their hotel rooms, where you fill in the blanks as to what they’re talking about. Those images really speak to you… you can taste their chemistry.”
