I was over the moon last Friday when I saw that SWMRS’ new music video was trending on YouTube. We’ve  been incredibly fond of this rising East Bay quartet and their punky rock. The band, who counts Billy Joe Armstrong’s son, Joey Armstrong, among its ranks, will be heading out on a North American co-headlining tour with The Interrupters this fall. Their new video for Lose It, one of many fine tunes from the re-released edition of their critically acclaimed debut album Drive North, was shot right in Oakland. Singer/guitarist Cole Becker directed the endearing clip for the sweetly euphonious song, which bursts at the seams with twangy hooking, head wagging sun-kissed pop. SWMRS re-released their debut album Drive North on Fueled By Ramen last fall. The newer version includes re-mastered versions of the original release’s 12 tracks and new songs Lost It and Palm Trees. Grab it digitally, here, and physically, here. Find out more about SWMRS’ forthcoming tour, here.
