I don't know if I can think of any other band so lovingly dedicated to evoking nostalgia as Rooney, both with its vintage power-pop sound and subtly detailed videos.
Today we've got the video for Rooney's single, "Holding On," taken from the easygoing recent album Eureka. In the group's previous video, "I Can't Get Enough," the band played with a decidedly '80s theme, performing some snazzy choreography in a roller-skating rink. In "Holding On," Rooney's clearly rolled back the clocks and gone '70s mode, with the band rocking a look that wouldn't be out of place on members of The Eagles back in their Topanga Canyon days.
There's nothing crazy going on here. Just cool dudes playing a cool song on a sunny hillside. I will say the use of turtlenecks is gutsy, and I'm going out on a limb here, trendsetting. That's right. Turtlenecks. Trendy.
Check out the beach boys of Rooney and their new video for "Holding On." Eureka is out now.
