Video of the Moment #214: Princeton

By on Wednesday, 3rd February 2010 at 6:00 pm

Here’s a newish video from Princeton, a four-piece rock/pop band from Santa Monica, California. I saw them live last October when they opened for Art Brut here in D.C. I really liked them because they did a good job engaging the audience – not always an easy thing for a support band to do. I’d describe their sound as atmospheric, gentle pop.

I really miss story-based promo vids. So this one for ‘Calypso Gold’ caught my attention for involving all four of their members. In it, twins Jesse and Matt Kivel appear to be allergic to obtaining mode of transportation by normal means, and their drummer David Kitz plays a guitar (what, huh?). Check it out and you’ll see what I mean.

By the way Princeton boys: nice placement of Obama’s mug in the video.


Princeton’s debut album ‘Cocoon of Love’ is available now on Kanine Records. You can purchase it from the band’s store.
