WATCH: Summer Moon – ‘Happenin”

With their album due for the end of this month, Summer Moon – fronted by The Strokes ‘ Nikolai Fraiture – have dropped the video for their latest single, ‘Happenin”.

Directed in downtown LA ‘Happenin” is a super cool, one-shot film, directed by Joel Knoernschild. Nikolai says of the video: “The chorus of ‘Happenin” is a mantra that is helpful especially during these crazy times in the US and the world. The video being one continuous shot speaks to the effect that events have on our perception of time – and that the only control we have is how we react to them. Sam Evans’ stand-out performance embodies the lyrical dichotomy of being fed up, having a strong urge to change things and being a helpless bystander.”

Featuring a brief cameo from Nikolai himself, and taking a journey through the nastiest alleys in LA, the ‘Happenin” video is a perfectly gritty accompaniment to the track.

With You Tonight is out on 24 February.
