Tiny Victories Release Video for “Mr. Bones”
“Highly danceable, joyous electropop, at times veering toward the orchestral.” – New York Magazine
“Tiny Victories serves up bittersweet bangers on its new EP, Those of Us Still Alive, which should satisfy those craving a hit of lush, hooky MGMT-style dance-pop.” – Time Out NY
Tiny Victories is thrilled to release the video for “Mr. Bones,” off their debut EP Those Of Us Still Alive, out now via BirdDog Records. Consequence of Sound premiered the clip, noting that the song “builds up layers with surprising grace – island percussion, to chiptune shimmers, to clap-beckoning bass, to uplifting synths coming in one at a time to construct a beatific dancer.”
The video was directed by Brian Bowman, creative director at the New York production and post-production studio Nice Shoes, which has helped make music videos for Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Kanye West. Bowman recently created films for Tycho and Blockhead, and his short films have been official selections at SXSW.
Earlier this year, WNYC’s John Schaefer picked Tiny Victories as the band to watch in 2012 in an NPR feature, calling the EP “full of smart, catchy electro-pop hooks with subversive production details to keep listeners guessing.” Recently, NPR’s All Songs Considered featured the band, premiering “Mr. Bones.”
Comprised of Cason Kelly and Greg Walters, the duo formed Tiny Victories in 2010. Prior to their transplant to Brooklyn, Cason spent his early 20s doing social work with inner city kids, while Greg spent six years as a foreign correspondent, covering a war (Russia-Georgia) and two revolutions (Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan). Tiny Victories are currently at work on their debut full-length album.
