Chicago band Geronimo! releases music video

Posted by Susan Schomburg

Chicago-based fuzz-rock trio Geronimo! (facebook/myspace) releases a music video for their catchy song "Design Yourself A Heart" today. The video was shot on July 10, 2010, and was produced by Minneapolis-based outfit Northern Outpost. The track is from the band's debut full-length album, Fuzzy Dreams. Earlier this year, I taped an interview podcast with band members Ben Grigg (keyboards/vox) and Kelly Johnson (guitar/vox), where they talked about recording Fuzzy Dreams and their creative process (click here to listen).

With intriguing visuals, the music video features band members Grigg and Johnson, along with drummer Matt Schwerin, running through various locations and dealing with excessive amounts of water. Over instant messenger, Grigg stated that the use of water in the video was the music video director's idea, and "has to do with a feeling of constant suffocation....The idea was that we were constantly gushing water, drowning on dry land. Also, that the three of us were essentially the same person, each going through the same experience, only outwardly different." According to Grigg, the band is currently in the process of writing new material for their second full-length album, which is slated for release next year.

The video is streaming online at vimeo. Fuzzy Dreams is available for download on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby.
