Video Premiere : “Canadian Tuxedo” by The Vidos

Today we are ecstatic to be teaming up with Vancouver-based pop-rock band The Vidos, to give our readers and exclusive first look at their music video for their latest single “Canadian Tuxedo”. The song is off the band’s forthcoming album Right In The Kisser, set for release on February 17 via Rock Is Dead Records.

With an affinity for fuzzy pop hooks, creative drumming and stacked harmonies, The Vidos is the project of Vancouver pals Brett Hornall, Kirk Musfelt and Nolan Nielsen. The group began performing together early on, playing Rush covers at their high school dances. The band would go on to spend the next three years writing, recording and touring across Canada before hunkering down in a converted shuttle buzz in downtown Toronto for the winter of 2019, where their material for Right In The Kisser! would come to life.

Known for their charming lyrics and onstage banter, The Vidos have gradually cultivated their live show into an immersive, genre-bending, fourth wall-shattering performance and have become one of Canada’s most promising and unpredictable groups in the process.

Directed by Rock Is Dead Records co-founder Dave Benedict and filmed in Mission, BC, the music video for “Canadian Tuxedo” is an ode to the much-loved fashion trend, as the band’s lead singer Brett Hornall wanders through a home filled with denim-covered mannequins. The video is a playful accompaniment to the earworm hooks and witty lyricism that make up The Vidos’ signature self-described “sludge pop” sound.

“The original idea for this video was about a mannequin love story,” explains band member Nolan Nielson. “But when we started shooting, the jokes started flying and we basically threw the whole script away and just winged it. In the end, it made for a hilarious video that we’re really proud of.”
