The Balconies ‘War’ – music video

The Balconies have released a hot, sweaty video for “War”, the single off the Toronto band’s forthcoming album Rhonda.

Set for release on Oct. 14, Rhonda “explores a myriad of musical and thematic material about its fictional heroine title character. A story of hope, self-discovery, and the struggle for authenticity in a saturated world will resonate with both music fans and artists alike,” according to a media release for the single.

The video features scantily clad dancers and a new, more sophisticated look for lead vocalist Jacquie Neville. The song is a slow-building, echo-y piece of modern rock.

Neville formed the band with Liam Jaeger in 2008.
