Video: THE REST – Hey! For Horses

September 26, 2012

If there is one thing that sets Hamilton indie-rock outfit THE REST apart from others, it’s their ability to be creative in every aspect of everything they do. This is apparent in their music, their live performances, and most recently their new video.

We’ve got to admit though, we’re a little biased when it comes to THE REST – they have after all played a handful of iM showcases in the past and we’ve written about their work many times. But there is a reason for that; simply put, they are an incredibly talented bunch. The band epitomizes what it means to be successful even if THE REST have never achieved “mainstream” success.

The aforementioned video for Hey! For Horses off of their latest effort Seesaw is below for your viewing pleasure. Watch, enjoy, and get to know THE REST a little bit better – trust us when we say, you’ll be glad you did.

If you’re in the Hamilton area, THE REST play The Casbah tomorrow night with the BESNARD LAKES – get out and show your support.
