Kopecky Family Band's 'Hope' [Fresh Vid]

Posted By on Mon, Apr 8, 2013 at 7:30 AM

Those who've perused the latest dead-tree edition of the Scene may have come across contributor Stephen "Goose" Trageser's review of Kids Raising Kids. That isn't the title of MTV's latest reality series (ugh, bad joke), but rather that of Kopecky Family Band's debut full-length, released by the Kopeckys themselves in the fall and reissued just last week by New York's ATO Records. For those keeping score, ATO also happens to be home to Alabama Shakes, My Morning Jacket, Widespread Panic, and locals including Rayland Baxter, Jonny Fritz, Caitlin Rose and formerly The Whigs.

Well, the day after KRK dropped, Kopecky Family Band premiered their A.K. Hottman-directed video for the tune "Hope" via MTV Hive. The video has a Moonrise Kingdom-meets-Where the Wild Things Are heartstring-tugging nostalgia-core thing going on, which pairs well with the Kopeckys' Arcade Fire-meets-New Pornographers heartstring-tugging indie-ensemble thing. Give that a look above, and if you like what you hear, stream all of Kids Raising Kids at AOL Spinner.
