Do you like Weezer? U.S. Bombs? Morrissey? The Bravery? Albert Hammond Jr.? Then you’re going to love The Relationship, a classic American rock band consisting of Brian Bell, Nate Shaw, Jon LaRue, and Anthony Burulcich. Some of their influences are the likes of The Beatles, The Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan and Buddy Holly, so consider us sold on ’em.
A few weeks ago, we got Steak (a.k.a Rachael Finley) to interview the band at Burgerama. Now, we’ve got the exclusive premiere for their “Young Temptations” video. Filmed in black and white, it features tons of live coverage of the band performing together IRL at the indie music festival. It’ll have you wondering whether it’s 2015 or 1973. Don’t fight the urge—give in to the feeling and break out your fave leather jacket and biker boots.
The Relationship is currently on tour following the release of their self-titled 7-inch single, out now via Burger Records.
