Canadian alt-rock band Bleeker have just shared their newest infectious single with “Straight For The Money.” The track comes off of their upcoming, yet to be announced album. And although we’ll be waiting to hear more on that, Bleeker have given us plenty to dive into with the new single. It presents a band primed and ready to take over, with a catchy hook, pop rock melodies galore, and an especially captivating accompanying video.
Speaking about the track’s meaning, singer Taylor Perkins says:
“‘Straight for the Money’ tells people that buying friends can make you feel less like a person and more like a commodity. If the band ever made lots of money… We would still drink cheap beer.”
The video takes that spirit of being winking and meaningful with colorful stop-motion cut-and-paste animation courtesy of SEEN FILM’s Stefano Bertelli. The visuals, along with the song’s sheer magnetic energy, are sure to invite new listeners along for Bleeker’s success.
