Rocky Loves Emily have been hard at work, building an adoring fanbase through DIY shows and grassroots efforts. One year later, the band has signed a record deal with Tooth and Nail, and is ready to premiere the video for their new single, 'Clueless,' which can be found on the Detroit rockers' just-released EP 'American Dream.'
"The inspiration behind the 'Clueless' video was popular TV shows like 'American Idol' and 'Making the Band,'" frontman Brandon Ellis tells us. "We thought it would be fun to do a similar idea about an 'open audition' to be the lead singer of Rocky Loves Emily. We hope you love it!"
The video shows the band as a panel of judges, watching all walks of life come in for the audition. From biker dudes to beauty queens, it seems like Rocky Loves Emily has a tough task to tackle. Then, the perfect candidate walks in and truly gets to live out a dream, just as the title of the band's new EP suggests.
"Our record portrays that just because you live in America, doesn't necessarily mean that 'the' American dream has to be your American dream." Brandon adds. "We all know that everyone has a specific dream in their heart. For instance, our dream is tour nonstop and meet as many people as possible all while trying to be sincere in what our fans are doing. The cool thing is, that's just our dream. Your dream is something awesome and unique."
