Ahead of their scheduled appearance at the 2018 edition of Verboden Festival, Vancouver’s Girlfriends and Boyfriends are premiering with us today their video for the track “Hope Was in the Way”; a song featured on their last LP Our Garden.

The charming Wayne Moreheart directed video—one of 5 collaborations with the band—features hand drawn animation in a studio setting that unapologetically captures the nostalgic sound and aesthetic of mid 80s post-punk and college rock. This feeling soars along with vocals imbued with unwavering sincerity that rise above jangly guitars, driving bass, and dancing percussion that is quite possibly composed with inspiration not taken by the band’s contemporaries, but rather instead their own treasured record collection.

Order Our Garden here, and catch Girlfriends and Boyfriends on Saturday, April 14th at Verboden.
