The Rest – Always On My Mind *video w/choir and animals!

Despite encountering some of the worst case scenarios, Canada’s The Rest can finally say they are releasing their sophomore record, Seesaw. Their music video for “Always On My Mind” was filmed just this past April in one continuous take with the help of 30 people and a couple furries. The track and video give a perfect first impression of The Rest: the video displays their big family style and the track’s methodic distortion is a running theme throughout the record.

“Always On My Mind” was stuck in my head immediately and their similarities to Clap Your Hands Say Yeah give their songs a comforting familiarity.

The Rest reveal a new track every week until the release of Seesaw on June 19 and offer each track download for 7 days. Stream and download below!
