The Scoop: Progressive pop-punkers Count to Four have released their new music video for “I Hope Not”, the opening track off their debut full-length album Between Two Cities. You can check out the video below.
The Spin: The band says of “I Hope Not”:
“The song, at its core, is about looking back at a year of your life, looking at the mistakes and things that went wrong, then trying to change your life for the better while moving forward. This was essentially why we decided that 80’s movies would be a great vehicle for this music video. Not only are we looking back to the decade in a literal sense, adding that bit of nostalgia necessary for such a project, but the overall theme of 80’s teen movies truly fit the theme of the song. As Ryan (Beacher, Director) said, “The work of John Hughes and other prominent 80’s filmmakers really embodied the teen angst we all went through and is still relevant today.”
Following its release back in April, Between Two Cities reached #1 on the Bandcamp Punk Chart and peaked at #3 on the overall charts. You can stream/purchase the album over at Count to Four’s official Bandcamp page.
