Cool Runnings Are Running Off to the US But Not Before Dropping a New Video

The Kiwi punks return with a video that should come with a flashing lights warning.
August 27, 2014, 12:56am

A little while back we premiered the video for Auckland punks Cool Runnings track “Blister”. Basically it featured them smoking bowls and blasting their fast buzzy punk in a basement. Well they are back in the basement only this time with a strobe. The new video for “White Girls” was filmed on a cold night by their buddy Eddy Fififield with the flashing light the only thing keeping them warm.

Taken off their I Hate it Here EP, the video contains frantic shouting/singing, skating and seizure inducing lights.


Expect a new EP on 1:12 records just in time for their US tour next month which includes dates at Goner Fest, Nashville, Austin (with Scott and Charlene’s Wedding), Oakland and Los Angeles.

Check the video. We like the cat shitting at the end. It's a nice touch.

If you are in Auckland this Saturday head to Whammy Bar for the ‘Cool Runnings Fuck Off’ fundraiser show and check here for more tour info.
