Kiwi Jr. Announce Debut Album
Toronto’s band sensation Kiwi Jr. is excited to announce the worldwide release of their debut album titled, “Football Money,”
via Persona Non Grata Records, who got a lot of traction in the music arena with Pip Blom’s debut EP in 2018.
Football Money is scheduled to hit the streets worldwide on January 17th, 2020, following on hot on the heels of the March 2019 Canadian release on Mint Records, best known for releasing early recordings by the New Pornographers, Neko Case, and Lou Barlow.
Today the band shared with us the video for their single “Salary Man.” It’s a virtual explosion of power-pop, the track, much like the full LP, was engineered by Aaron Goldstein and mixed by Holy Fuck’s Graham Walsh.
California Pretty: Can you share with us and our readers some insight into the meaning behind the video “Salary Man?”
Kiwi Jr.: “after the fall of civilized society, all that’s left is a future rife with radioactive dogs and the remains of parties that never really took off. Clad in suit and tie and unable to part with their old routine, our hero wanders aimlessly through debris and clean up crews, searching for the remnants of something compelling and desirable.” The clip was directed by Ben Rayner who says: “Putting together a perspective for this video, I wanted it to be fast-paced, low budget, tongue-in-cheek, and highly personable. What we ended up with is ‘Salary Man.’”
