[Watch] The Stepkids - "Suburban Dream" (Official Video)

Today, Connecticut psych rock trio The Stepkids let loose the visuals for their track "Suburban Dream," off of their debut LP, which was released in September of this year. The video features a sketch of a suburban kid being brought to life through some awesome animation, and follows him through a psychadelic dreamscape of the big city. Check out the visual splendor for yourself in the player above.

[Watch] The Stepkids - "Legend In My Own Mind"

A middle aged white man who wouldn't look out of place in any office in well, the world, and add to that a boom-box and hip-hop. It's not exactly the image you'd picture when either of those things were mentioned to you however, The Stepkids have created this comical video for their track "Legend In My Own Mind" which sits alongside the track. Crack out your gold chains and Kangol flat caps 'cos if this guy can rock it, anyone can.
