Last month, Wesley Bunch released his debut, self-titled full-length under the moniker Suburban Living. His music—blissed-out daydreaming jams coated with a laid-back lustrous glaze—lives on the same block as early Real Estate and Wild Nothing.
The new video for Suburban Living track “New Strings” has an overt tone of surreality to match the daze-y pop—natch, from a guy who nods to Twin Peaks as a musical muse—as Bunch encounters groups on the beach engaged in peculiar acts, directing him onwards.
For the video, Bunch explains the collaboration with the video’s director Arielle Green
“A few months back, my girlfriend stumbled across an ad online from a New York Film Academy student by the name of Arielle Green looking for a band to shoot a music video for. I hit her up, she dug the music, and we began brainstorming ideas for a music video. Eventually we landed on Dead Horse Bay in New York as being the location and came up with this wild concept based on the location. We shot the entire thing in probably fives hours. It was a super fun time, and a great collaboration with Arielle on the video. She did most of the work, so a huge huge thanks to her and everyone she got involved.”
Suburban Living’s debut LP is out now on PaperCup music, and Bunch will be on tour on a series of East Coast date in March and April, including a residency in his home base of Philadelphia.
