The premise for Comeback My Daughters’ video for new single “Why” isn’t terribly complex – the band is in New York City, let’s film them running around pretending to play their instruments while a few baffled locals cast strange glances at the camera every once in awhile. Easy, but entertaining. Especially when they end up standing outside of a combination Dunkin Donuts/Taco Bell Express, mostly because I didn’t know such a thing existed. NYC, what a crazy place! Also props to the big New York Ranger’s finger.
The actual song follows a similar uncomplicated room, shooting for a moderately paced chug peppered by yelps. It builds to a string-laden climax worth the wait. “Why” isn’t anything life altering, but a nice bit of indie rock…they tagged themselves that on YouTube…to start the week.
