Welles release video for "Life Like Mine," and play The Knitting Factory 06.02

Welles release video for "Life Like Mine," and play The Knitting Factory 06.02

The Nashville-based Welles has released an official music video for their song, "Life Like Mine" from their debut EP, Codeine. "Life Like Mine" is an up-tempo rock tune hearkening to the '90s sensibilities of artists like Beck and Pavement. Using 1960s music iconography to ironic effect (the band members are dressed like Sgt. Pepper's-era Beatles and Hendrix at Monterey), Welles wonders aloud what kind of person is able to "live a life like mine," detailing scenes of destitution, substance abuse and confusion. With swelling keys, booming percussion and overdriven guitars, it's self-aware as a rock song, even as the lyrics eschew the fabled rock n' roll lifestyle. Welles is playing the Governor's Ball Music Festival After Dark at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on June 2nd. Check out the video below! - Ethan Ames
