KIWI JR ” Waiting in Line” New Video

KIWI JR share video ahead of new album release

Kiwi Jr. is sharing an official video for “Waiting in Line,” a new offering and highlight from Cooler Returns, their forthcoming album. The video was directed by Laura-Lynn Petrick and captures a day in the life of the band in their homebase of Toronto, Ontario.

“We like the candid and casual approach of director Laura-Lynn’s previous videos, including Weyes Blood, Jessica Pratt, Michael Rault, Twist, and she was excited by our idea to wander around downtown Toronto while it was something of a ghost-town.” says singer Jeremy Gaudet.

Kiwi Jr. Cooler Returns has seen praise from the likes of MOJO, who in its four-star review, raves, “sustaining momentum near-flawlessly across 13 songs…proves Kiwi Jr. have the skills to match their smarts.” Uncut says, “Canadian absurdists’ return is a lyrical delight”, and DIY proclaims, “The band rattle through a seemingly inexhaustible supply of hooks and melodies (4/5).”

As for “Cooler Returns,” the album’s title track, it spent 3 weeks in the U.S at #1 on the commercial alternative specialty chart. BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music, Radio X and Amazing Radio have all been supporting recent singles.
