BESTiE is starting the summer with a new video for their single Sriracha, which the band premiered this week. Along with the video, the band released a remix of their track Foolish Hearts, by Kalibo – a new tropical electronic act from Vancouver. Listen here. BESTiE is also performing a number of shows this summer, with tour dates in July and August.
The video for Sriracha was shot by the band and directed by lead singer Tristan Orchard – who has previously worked as a filmmaker and worked on the group’s past videos. Filmed in Colombia – where the band’s drummer, Daniel Ruiz, is originally from – the band shot most of the video on the fly, improvising and casting people on the street along the way. The track comes from the band’s recently released debut album, No Bad Days (April 22, 2014), and will be featured on an episode of Esquire TV’s Best Bars In America.
No Bad Days is an 8-track pop-rock record full of danceable beats. The album features the singles Pineapple and Asleep on the Bus, which were recorded at Greenhouse Studios with producer, Digory Smallz. The remaining 6 songs were recorded at Monarch Studios and The Menagerie with producer Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, The New Pornographers).
