Recently, alternative indie rock collective Arms Akimbo – expertly comprised of Colin Boppell, Chris Kalil, Peter Schrupp, and Matt Sutton – released their 6 track EP The Wrong Kind of Dance Party. From the leisurely, pleasantly upbeat soundscape, to the relatable lyrics, we’re surprised by how much we’re captivated by their sound. It’s like the audio manifestation of summertime, and the best part is that there is now a music video for their track “Velleity” to enjoy as well.
“Velleity” feels like summertime as well, though it’s a little more melancholic in its representation. Waking up after the party makes for a slightly sluggish day, filled with recuperation and true discovery of what happened the night previous. The guys of Arms Akimbo perfectly act the sluggishness out, between frames of them performing the song, petting a dog, playing Jenga, and more.Directed by Christopher Kalil and Will Houlihan, it’s definitely an enjoyable visual, bright and fun while casual and relaxing.
