First catching our ear at last year’s Road to Roo competition, where they made it to the Nashville area finals, Kid Freud are the perfect balance of lo-fi, garage/grunge, blended with indie pop, which tends to really hit our sweet spot. Birthed in 2014 by friends Alex Tomkins and Daniel Closser, KF have been building a reputation all over the region for a killer live show backed by quality original material, so we’re beyond thrilled to help them debut their brand new video for “American Boy,” the title track from their latest EP.
When asked what inspired the video, the group told us that they “tried to make something extremely colorful and relished in the idea of making ourselves look as uncool as possible.” The tongue-in-cheek video is the perfect way to help laugh off the work week, and get motivated to get into some shenanigans this weekend. Check it out after the jump, and be sure to check out the whole EP as well. If you love Nashville’s ever growing indie garage rock scene, we can almost guarantee you’ll dig Kid Freud!
