Melbourne indie-rockers Mylk have just unleashed the video clip for their latest single, the infectious ‘Not My Fault’.
How often have you found yourself looking for that perfect Friday afternoon tune? You know the kind; one with a breezy, laidback vibe, feel-good lyrics, and one that will help set yourself up for one of the most legendary weekends on record?
Sure, you might find yourself chucking on some tracks by the likes of Mac DeMarco, DIIV, or Real Estate, but it’s pretty easy to discover that nothing quite scratches that itch.
Thankfully, there’s one group on the scene who are perfectly suited for the occasion, and they’re none other than Melbourne indie-rock outfit Mylk.
Having been on the scene for a couple of years now, the Victorian quartet have been slowly building a name for themselves on the local scene, playing shows at every chance they get and recording a number of exceptional tracks along the way
With tunes like ‘I Want You’, ‘Internet Cafe’, and ‘Day 4 / Now’ all hitting the triple j Unearthed charts, Mylk have now continued their reputation as a fine indie outfit, unleashing the video for their latest single ‘Not My Fault’.
A chilled-out, breezy number that evokes recollections of Mac DeMarco’s effortless style, ‘Not My Fault’ is one of those tunes that you can’t help but fall in love with, as its infectious style and delivery prompt you to hit that repeat button like there’s no tomorrow.
Backed by its quirky video, directed by Jack Wilson-Lee of JWL Productions, the song’s clip takes viewers on a trip through the classic sharehouse scene, only to drop in a bit of a twist along the way.
Featuring some kooky characters in interesting situations, the clip also features an endearingly-apathetic performance from Mylk themselves, proving that they’re exactly the sort of band you’d want to soundtrack your next sharehouse shindig.
“The video is a bunch of small sketches where different events occur that are seemingly ‘Not My Fault’,” explains lead singer Nathaniel Peacock.
“This idea of doing multiple lighthearted sketches was our idea from the beginning of planning the video, as well as creating the effect that the video was filmed all in one take.
“We wanted the video to emphasise the lyrics in the song, as they do tell somewhat of a story.”
Mylk are set to release ‘Not My Fault’ on August 8th, and will be launching the single with a performance at Collingwood’s Grace Darling Hotel on August 23rd. Check out the video below, along with the details for the band’s upcoming performance!
