Green Label Sound is excited to release the brand new video for The Cool Kids‘ “Rush Hour Traffic“.  Filmed this Winter in various locations around Chicago, including the Bridgeport Art Center where the band was performing their sold-out show, director Joey Garfield (Ghost Robot) captured Chuck Inglish and Mikey Rocks while animator Elliot Lim (Well N’ Good) layered his lively animation into the duo’s favorite hometown haunts.

“Rush Hour Traffic,” appears on The Cool Kids’ full-length album, When Fish Ride Bicycles, released last year on Green Label Sound.  The video came to be when Mountain Dew Code Red approached the guys to perform at their event.  Chuck Inglish described their similarities “We don’t have a formula, there’s really no blue print to what we do,” which also describes their relationship with the label which, “always gives us a chance to do newer and creative things on a higher level.”

More of his thoughts as well as the making of the video are available to view in this behind-the-scenes clip:
