As part of MTV’s Indie Music Month, we’re premiering videos from some of the most exciting artists in the indie music scene. Today, we’re featuring “Mindset,” the new track from Michigan punk-pop quintet Every Avenue.
The video for “Mindset” is a hilarious nod to Every Avenue’s prepubescent female fan base, as the band members become the kidnapping victims to an overly enthusiastic young lady. With the acumen and stealth of a professional hitman — make that hitgirl — the fan employs her Fisher-Price “My First Stalker” kit to snatch each band member and hold him hostage. Pizza, poison arrows and the band’s own CD are all used against them, culminating in a forced rock show in a very pink bedroom.
Luckily, the guys are able to escape at the end. Or are they?
“Mindset” is actually the third single taken from the group’s 2009 album Picture Perfect. It’s been a minute since we last heard from the guys, who released videos for “Tell Me I’m A Wreck” and “For Always, Forever” last year.
