Further proof that San Francisco is again the go to city for right-on sounds. The Tropics come out swingin’ with their single Fireproof from the new album Wind House (Breakup) out 28 October. A near mirror image of Marky Mark’s 1991 cringe fest video Good Vibrations, their fresh video supplies an almost surreal backdrop to the real story. The Tropics bring the infectious garage-pop cool!
The Tropic’s Claire George recently filled us in on the track/video, “The song is one of our favorites off the new record “Wind House”, and was a song that changed significantly when we got into the studio and experimented with it. The video was incredibly fun to make, we were bouncing ideas around and were watching the Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch Good Vibrations video a lot, and just went for it! It took a ton of planning to recreate that video shot for shot. The guys in the band actually learned all those dance moves by watching the original video in slow motion and then practicing for weeks, that’s actually them dancing!”
We can dig it! We’ll be catching up with The Tropics very soon. Until then check out the video for the track you’ll have bouncing around your cranial cavity all day…
