Alternative radio chart toppers The Unlikely Candidates have just released the music video for their radio single “Gemini.”
“We wanted to create a kaleidoscopic world for the gemini video that was as big and colorful as the song. We mixed together equal parts Alice in Wonderland and Studio 54 to set the scene and nod to the song’s retro sound. The interplay between the band and the Gemini skater contrasts the dynamics of the two, from graceful and mysterious to manic and visceral. The video finds it’s duality in a wild world of cosmic visuals and energy, very much like the twin constellations themselves,” states The Unlikely Candidates frontman Kyle Morris.
The Unlikely Candidates have also just announced their winter 2022 headline tour. The band will be touring in support of their new music starting January 1st in Roswell and wrapping on January 22nd in Basalt, with direct support from The Criticals. Tickets are available to purchase HERE.
“Gemini” follows the release of The Unlikely Candidates’ previous radio singles, “High Low” and the band’s breakout song “Novocaine”. Stay tuned for more details on forthcoming releases by following the band on socials.
Formed in Fort Worth, Texas in 2008, The Unlikely Candidates have released three EP’s since 2013, and are grateful that years of hardship and hard work finally yielded rabid fans and rave reviews. As the song goes: It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock & roll and in the case of The Unlikely Candidates–one of the most energetic alt-rock bands to ever take a stage–their long journey includes years of crisscrossing the U.S. on tour; record label fiascos; bones broken on stage; and tour bus disasters. So the success of 2019’s impossibly catchy single “Novocaine” (#1 on the alternative charts; over 37 million YouTube views; over 55 million streams) is more than well deserved. “Novocaine”’s huge success (it beat out Billie Eilish for the #1 spot on the Alternative Radio Chart), landed the track on Vevo’s “Most Watched Alternative Video List.” It was also featured in the Season 4 trailer of HULU’s Veronica Mars, and on Now That’s What I Call Music. Additionally, TUC tunes have been featured on Ray Donovan, ABC’s American Idol, FOX’s The Four, NFL’s Super Bowl 2018 playoffs, ESPN’s 2018 Indy 500programming, Fox Sports and more. Along the way, on tours with Sublime, With Rome, The Offspring, the Dirty Heads and Fall Out Boy, the band earned acclaim from top tier media outlets.
The Unlikely Candidates is Kyle Morris (vocals), Brenton Carney (lead guitar), Cole Male (guitar), Jared Hornbeek(bass) and Kevin Goddard (drums).
