The Classic Kids – Eric James, Matty Boy, Max Dean and Mikey G – have come a long way since they released their debut single “Just Begun” in 2015 and have undertaken quite a musical evolution in recent months but nowhere is said evolution more evident than on the bands’ latest single “Amy”, the video for which ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere.
Asked about the background to the track, lead singer and bassist Eric James explains:
“The premise of the song ‘Amy’ was written to tell the quintessential “Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda” story about the nice guy who lost the girl. We figured it would be a fun topic to delve into and bring to life for the listener.”
The video to the song was directed by Eric Striffler with him and the band working in almost perfect harmony with one another to shoot each and every frame you see on screen. The result is a clip which puts a rather fun and unique twist on the typical classic horror movie style videos which several bands and artists have created over the past few years.
“Amy” has a very 80’s feel to it, and is a high-energy, up-tempo track with a strong, relatable message. For those yet unfamiliar with The Classic Kids, it also serves as a fantastic introduction to a band who can only have bigger and better things ahead for them.
