PREMIERE: Watch Heaters' New Video For "Mean Green"

Whoever said garage rock wasn't danceable has clearly never listened to Heaters.

Remember that part at the end of Back To The Future where Marty is slaying guitar during "Johnny B. Goode" at his parent's "Enchantment Under The Sea" dance? Well I DO, AND I WISH I WAS THERE. Anyway, you could easily replace "Johnny B. Goode" with Grand Rapids-based band Heaters' new jam titled "Mean Green." The band even did you a favor in visualizing a situation like this with a retro 50s-inspired video featuring a bunch of slick dudes dancing with poodle skirt dames. The band's story is a classic high-school-best-friends-meet-neighbor-start-band situation. The trio released a handful of EPs, split records, and tracks last year, and are now finally ready to take the leap in releasing their first debut full-length album later this year via Beyond Beyond is Beyond.


"Mean Green" is the A-side of Heaters' upcoming seven-inch (out today!) which you can order here. Watch the video below, and please note that it is totally possible to hand-jive to garage rock.
