The rock group Listener exclusively presents the brand new music video for the song “There is money in the walls”.
Hailing from Kansas City, Listener is made up of vocalist and bassist Dan Smith, drummer Kris Rochelle and guitarist Jon Terrey. Creating self-labeled “spoken music”, the band describes its sound as a “nearly perfect balance between what words and music are meant to be” – and the new track shows that balance.
“‘There’s Money in the Walls’ is about Rudolph Diesel, the guy who invented the Diesel Engine,” Rochelle says of the new track. “Dan and I sat on my couch and wrote most of this song a week before we left for a US tour last year. Once we got home to finish it, three months have passed and the idea of how much time Diesel has been away from his family and loved ones for his job really hit home and I think it kind of soaked into Dan’s words and we decided that we wanted the video to reflect how in Listener we always try to make time to make ourselves a home on the road. The lake house in the video is our friend’s. We stay there with him and cook and do a fire every time we’re up there. It just felt natural to be surrounded by loved ones if we were to make a video for this song.”
The trio plans to release tracks from their new album across four 7-inch vinyl records sometime this year. You can buy the first 7 inch here. “There’s Money in the Walls” – on the album – won’t be on any of the 7 inches.
