Wichita-based indie-popsters Abandon Kansas have premiered a new music video for their latest single “You+Me+The Radio” at ArtistDirect.com. The track comes off their forthcoming EP A Midwest Summer, due out June 11th. The new video was directed by Atlanta-based videographer/director Skyler Smith, and takes a non-traditional approach to music videos – the band or any performance footage are nowhere to be found. A nostalgic and heartwarming sequence between a young couple progresses to the uplifting chimes of “You+Me+The Radio.”

Vocalist Jeremy Spring on the filming of the video –

“Skyler [Smith] was in the studio filming us when we were recording A Midwest Summer and he approached us about doing a story line video after hearing the song so many times. We liked the simple concept and the idea of us stepping out of the picture for a video. No doubt road trips still play an iconic role in Midwestern summers, so the nostalgia in the Polaroids and road trip footage from our characters here in this video is easy to connect with.”

Abandon Kansas will spend the remainder of the spring on the road, and are currently offering a vinyl pre-order package via Bandcamp for their new EP A Midwest Summer, which hits all digital retailers on June 11th. The band will also be offering the EP for a “pay-what-you-want” ledger from June 1st-10th.
