Red Sun Rising Premiere New Video For Their Cover Of The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t It Be Nice”

Red Sun Rising have premiered a new video for their cover of The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t It Be Nice.” This track is from the band’s latest EP “Peel.”

Mike Protich told Billboard the following:

“We didn’t want to go full-blown retro on the video. We just said, ‘Let’s make a nice, classy video, show the band as we are today and kind of make a timeless stamp.’ So we put on suits, which we’ve never done before. Our branding and our music has always been a little bit psychedelic, a lot of colors and just a little bit off the wall, and it was nice to kind of hone it down and have this kind of look in the video, just to contrast everything else we’ve done. It was fun to be a little different.”

“I haven’t heard one bad comment, actually. I’m sure there’s some out there if I want to start searching. But so far everyone’s embracing it. I think they can tell we had fun with it. The Beach Boys is a band we’ve always been inspired by, so we’re stoked to get the chance to do it and release it and have people hear it.”
