Today, Nicotine Dolls share the music video for their brand new single entitled “Upset the Neighbors.” Under the Radar hosted the video’s premiere.
On the video, Nicotine Dolls’ lead vocalist Sam Cieri, said: “Our videos are the other half of what we do and we have a lot of fun making them ourselves. The goal for this was to double down on the fun and make something that didn’t take itself too seriously (like those great Foo Fighters videos). We spent two days creating and filming chaos in our friends apartments and it will go down as the most fun we have had making a video so far. This video is meant to make you smile and laugh and feel good because after the year and a half we have all had that’s what we all (including this band) need.”
The NYC based band was formed in 2017 after lead vocalist Sam Cieri and lead guitarist John Hays decided to form a band after meeting on tour. Bassist John Merritt and drummer Abel Tabares joined quickly after.
The band has spent the past 4 years recording and releasing music (produced by Eric Sanderson) as well as producing their own videos. DIY touring and hometown NYC shows are always left shaking from the bands emotional raw and energetic performances. Balancing genre fluidity between Alt-Rock, Pop, and some bits between, the band’s music is always rooted in honesty and the simple complexities of being a person.
