Hooray for Earth - “Surrounded By Friends” (video)

[8 April 2010]

By Daniel Tebo

Hooray for Earth is a frighteningly innovative NYC band currently penciled in as THE hottest freshman act of the new decade. Their already acclaimed MOMO EP will see proper release via Dovecote Records on June 1st. Upon the EP’s release, the band will hit the road for a tour supporting current buzz kingpins Surfer Blood and Pains of Being Pure at Heart. In the meantime, they’ve dropped a video for leadoff single “Surrounded By Friends”. The video finds HFE frontman Noel Heroux taking a spin through a universe that bears a striking resemblance to that of Mario Kart…had Mario and Luigi shared a bottle of wine and a couple of Vicodin before hitting the road. Oh, and there’s Muppets too.
