Family Video is Newfoundland’s dreamy indie rock gem. Lead by J. King’s driving guitar and raw emotive vocals; the band includes By Divine Right’s Geordie Dynes on drums, The Burning Hell’s Jake Nicoll on synth, and St. John’s’ indie rock mainstay, Knoah Bender on bass.
From small town kid to St. John’s indie rock fixture, J. King’s journey informs their earnest song writing; expressing a yearning of the heart that is relatable, but rarely revealed with such vulnerability.
Their latest album, Forever Changes Overnight has J. King playing an assortment of instruments on songs ranging from upbeat to brooding. It also features Fog Lake’s Aaron Powell on guest vocals and piano to round out this beautiful and deeply personal masterpiece of indie rock.
After enjoying an underground following on tape distros and playing small tours and festivals for many years, Family Video are finally being exposed to a wider audience through Victoria, BC based label, Coax records, and Seattle’s Lost Sound Tapes.
“soft and dreamy indiepop from eastern Canada that sounds like Julie Doiron fronting a Harriet Records band ” – Chris Mac (Jigsaw Records, Portland OR)
