Kiwi Jr. Announces New Album “Chopper”, Premieres New Song “Night Vision” on BBC Radio 1
- Toronto-based alt-rock band Kiwi Jr., consisting of Jeremy Gaudet (vocals), Mike Walker (bass), Brohan Moore (drums), and Brian Murphy (guitar), announced their third studio album “Chopper” would be released on August 12, 2022 via Sub Pop.
The album comprises 10-track, produced by Wolf Parade cofounder and current Arcade Fire member Dan Boeckner,
From the album, the band premiered the first single “Night Vision” along with a music video on BBC Radio 1's Future Artists with Jack Saunders.
It was written by Written by Jeremy Gaudet, Mike Walker, Brohan Moore, and Brian Murphy. The accompanying video was directed by Laura-Lynn Petrick, starring Jimmy James.
“Before 'Night Vision' was 100% written, just the basic idea of it existing as a Kiwi Jr. song inspired us and set the tone for the record,” frontman Jeremy Gaudet said of the song. “A lot of the images in the lyrics are of teenagers driving around, trying to make plans, sharing the aux, putting their parents' car in the ditch, etc. But the idea at the center of the song is that of working up the nerve to make a big decision. Like a boxer getting pumped up before a fight.”
