Super Best Friends have released a music video for ripping track 'Dog Whistling'. These punk dudes from Canberra have unleashed the song from their anticipated debut album 'Status Updates' (out via Gun Fever Records Friday March 20) . The animation for the new music video was made from 20-year-old Canberra-based graphic artist and animator Emma Fish.
'The music video is a compelling take on the irony that boat people from 200 years ago now tell boat people from today that they're not welcome. Emma approached the band about doing a clip for ‘Dog Whistling’, after catching them play it live in October last year. She conceived the idea and story after multiple listens and hand-drew every scene and character over several months. '
Catch Super Best Friends peddling their highly political head and heart pounding sonic wares on tour nationally through March and April. Album pre-orders (including psychadelic pug t-shirt) now available here.
