[EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE] Oh, Be Clever: Next To You
The first city of the Mormon's, Salt Lake City, isn't exactly know for being a hot bed of electro-pop music, or really any music, but that is about to change, and it's all thanks to Cory Scott Layton and Brittney Shields. The duo, were originally part of rival bands, like legit West Side Story kind of rivals. Fist fights and turf wars broke out between the bands and through the flying fists Shields & Layton connected, like star crossed musical lovers. They fled their combative compatriots to make music together, free of the quarrelsome energy. Thus Oh, Be Clever was born.
Together Layton & Shields have created a refreshing pop sound that defies all convention and leaves you desperately wanting more. Their debut single, "Next To You" is a blazing electro-rock anthem with a soaring chorus made for radio that showcases Shields impressive vocals and Layton's tight production. It's a track that will be stuck in your head for days. Just let got and enjoy it.
Kick Kick Snare is proud to premiere the video for that single exclusively! The video, created by Kyle Gibby, taps into the darker undertones of the song with a classic horror movie twist.
