Just as they are about to embark on their first tour of 2018, the guys in AJR have unleashed a brand new music video. On Thursday (Feb. 1), the New York-based brothers unleashed the music video for their current radio staple, “Sober Up.”
The almost four-minute clip begins with frontman Jack Met walking out of a subway and starting his trek down a sidewalk. While he’s waiting to cross the street, he doesn’t notice that the younger version of himself is staring back at him. He continues on his trek,but while stopped at an intersection, he sees the younger version of himself staring back at him from the reflection of some random guy’s sunglasses.
Throughout the clip Jake continues to see the younger version of himself in every reflective surface he comes in contact with. Joining him along his trip across town are his brothers/bandmates Adam and Ryan, playing their instruments as he sings his way down alleyways.
According to a press release, the music video is “a nod to the song’s nostalgic lyrics” and “evokes a longing for youthful innocence.” Watch the clip for the song above.
“Sober Up” is featured on AJR’s recently release sophomore album, The Click. the song features, and was co-written, by Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo.
In support of the album’s release, the trio is set to hit the road later this month for their The Click Spring 2018 tour. The upcoming trek will kick off next Thursday, Feb. 8, at The Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, North Carolina. After spending three months on the road travelling across the continent, the tour will wrap up on May 12 at the House of Blues in Boston.
