Video: Weekend, "It's Alright"

FADER PREMIERE

San Francisco's Weekend recently wrapped an East Coast tour with Nothing, a fairly well-matched live pairing since both acts make blaring guitar noise that's tough to pin down. The lo-fi video for "It's Alright," a song from Weekend's 2013 full-length Jinx, follows a predictable, homespun, young-people-on-the-beach narrative. It works here, though, if only because the sunrise-hued footage functions as an interesting contrast to the overcast, almost gothic-sounding track; I would never think to call Weekend "beach music" but there is something kind of tidal about their expansive post-punk song structures. Jinx is out now on Slumberland; check out the rest of their Spring tour schedule below.
