In 2010, four friends began to play music together on the unfinished 11th floor of Winnipeg’s Commodities and Exchange building. It was there that guitarist/vocalist Matt Worobec, keyboardist Zack Antel, bassist Jason Pankratz and drummer Luke Janzen began writing and practicing songs that would end up on their debut self-titled EP, Lost Weekend.
With Grammy nominated producer Zach Heiligman (Foster The People) at the helm, the Canadian quartet’s first offering of songs encompasses elements of New Wave and ‘90s alt with a radiant pop veneer. Today, we are excited to premiere the four-piece’s video for the EP’s latest single, “Let Me In.”
Utilizing CGI, the video tells its story through a series of pin art toys, which mold to form its characters. Though on first spin the song is a sparkly, synth-pop anthem, listen closer and hear Worobec pour his heart out with lyrics like “In my heart I know, I shouldn’t have let you go,” and “Where have we gone wrong?” This juxtaposition between music and lyrics makes the song that much more intriguing and arouses curiosity for what else the band has up its sleeve. Look out for Lost Weekend later this spring.
