Stepkids video for “Suburban Dream”

The Stepkids have become known for their unique spin on just about everything: their music, live show and videos. The trio released the video for “Suburban Dream” today, the third from their critically praised self-titled debut album (out now on Stones Throw). Featuring the animated work of director Chris King–who has edited and done graphics for a wide range of filmmakers including Academy Award-nominated directors and producers–the video shows another stylistic side of the band, following their psychedelic debut video “Wonderfox” and comedic Tom Scharpling-directed/ Kurt Braunohler and Wyatt Cenac-starring video for “Legend In My Own Mind.”

The group recently won over new fans at the CMJ Music Marathon (see quotes below) and will soon bring their futuristic electro soul and soaring harmonies mixed with psychedelic visuals to international stages in Europe and Australia. They’ve also confirmed new shows in Connecticut and Brooklyn. See current tour dates are below.

The Stepkids’ groove is a fusion of punk and jazz, West African and 1960s folk, neo and classic soul,
classic funk and 20th century classical. Their debut album was produced, engineered and recorded on a
reel-to-reel by the band.
