New Release & Video: Kevin Morby – Don’t Underestimate Midwest American Sun

Kansas City-based musician Kevin Morby has released a video for “Don’t Underestimate Midwest American Sun,” a track off of his newest album, Sundowner, out now on Dead Oceans.

This video is the final instalment in a trilogy of videos made for Sundowner. This video, directed by Johnny Eastlund and Dylan Isbell, takes influence from Wim Winders’ Paris, Texas as it jumps back and forth from a grim reality in a roadside motel to a dreamscape theatre…

“At the time of writing the album, it felt like Katie and I were the only two people on earth – living out in suburban Kansas away from the chaos of our lives on the road and on the coasts and our days became very childlike and innocent: riding bikes, making up games and singing songs,” says Morby. “When we found ourselves back in a similar environment due to the lockdown, and it came time to make videos, I wanted to depict our lives in solitude from when I wrote the album.”
