After a hectic stint of live dates around the North Island over the last 2 months, Skinny Hobos continue to push their gigantic 2-piece sound into NZ’s earholes with the release of their brand new single and accompanying video for 'Suburban Living,' which premiered this morning through youtube.com.
Delivering more energy and noise than two men legally should, the bombastic single perfectly showcases the Hobos driving rock and roll sound, adding a bucket of sass and a pinch of groove to the mix. Says guitarist/singer Alex Elvis of the instrumentation, “You couldn't get more cowbell if you cloned 30 copies of Will Ferrell, chucked them in a field full of Dutch dairy cows, and made it rain fidget spinners.”
Suburban Living is the third single release from Skinny Hobos, and becomes Chapter 3 in the video saga which began with their debut single ‘The Merchant of Tirau’ in May 2016 and continued with follow up single ‘Jokers and Fools’, released last December. Furthering their visual partnership with director Stefan Coetzee, the duo has again been put through their paces after previously surviving a gang attack, transportation onto a deserted island, a missing-persons hunt and a swarm of mysterious doppelgangers. With the support of a NZ On Air for their latest project, prepare to see the Hobos fight back with what they do best in instalment number 3.
