Vancouver, BC-based singer-songwriter Russell Gendron will be releasing his third outing, Homebody under the band moniker Bill Jr. Jr. on January 26, 2020.
The mood on Homebody is personal, building on Gendron’s intimate and lyrical focus with the band’s big drums, soaring electric guitar, vintage keys and spacey textures. The arrangements shine, with thick string sections and rich vocal harmonies creating a lush and energizing result, which all comes through on the album’s 3rd single “Dear Neighbour”.
Today, we are here to help Bill Jr. Jr. unveil the video for that single, “Dear Neighbour”.
“‘Dear Neighbour’ is about a friend, we grew up together,” says Russell. “She has a family now and became a successful architect, so this is about me reflecting on our different paths and where we are now.”
The video, which was shot in 360 degrees creates a fun and interactive video experience while showcasing Bill Jr. Jr.’s lo-fi 90s slacker vibe.
Check out the video below, and stay up to date with the band via their socials.
