Hey Kids! We’re pleased as punch to bring you the world premiere of “Contentment,” the first single and video from budding Seattle supergroup Rub. Comprised of former and current members of local favorites like Trick Candles, Salt Lick, Acid Tongue, NighTraiN, Killer Workout, Cute Lepers, Panama Gold, and La Fonda, the group’s sound recalls the finer moments of 80s pop and neo-soul.
Clearly children of the MTV generation, “Contentment” is a refreshing departure from today’s abstract, overly-orchestrated mini movies that pass for music videos. Instead, we get a taste for the energy and camaraderie the group brings to their live performances filmed by fellow Seattle artist, photographer and musician Nina Wasankari.
