Surging onto the West Coast indie rock scene less than a year ago, Wallows are riding a wave that’s about to break. The trio consisting of Braeden Lemasters, Dylan Minnette and Cole Preston are certainly no strangers to making a big splash. Lemasters has landed roles on major TV networks like ABC and TNT; Minnette currently portrays Clay Jensen in the popular Netflix drama 13 Reasons Why. But what the actors are doing off screen is just as buzz worthy.
After putting out a series of successful singles, the childhood friends are ready to release their debut EP this spring. The still untitled project comes out under Atlantic Records after the band completes a short U.S. tour that kicks off this month. Today, they premiere the music video for their next track, “Pictures of Girls.”
The new tune focuses on a love interest that’s grown up and moved away from home. Preston’s drumming propels the sun-drenched song forward, while Minnette’s deep vocals punch through the sentimental lyrics. Lemasters swoops in during the hazy breakdown to add a sweet backing falsetto.
The video shines a light on what life stuck back in the suburbs looks like. We see the band create their own fun by throwing too much gasoline on a grill, getting wet by the pool, playing with a cute pup and skateboarding to nowhere in particular. They keep things cheeky by frequently breaking the fourth wall and giving their drummer a new ‘do.
