SOTD: SWMRS – Drive North

SWMRS – “Drive North”

Over the past two years, you’ve seen a handful of pieces on RARAS Farm about Bay Area rockers SWMRS.  That’s because they are one of the best things to happen to rock ‘n roll in the past decade. Today, the punky quartet released a fun video for their  hard-driving title track “Drive North.”

The song is an ode to how much lead singer Cole Becker despises Los Angeles, and for good reason.  Check out the song and video, and watch it through to the end for a deeper understanding of where the vitriol come from.  Priceless stuff and the song kicks ass.

SWMRS are about to embark on a huge co-headlining North American Tour with equally awesome and distinctive rockers The Interrupters.
