Power-pop band The Jellybricks, who recently announced their next studio album Some Kind Of Lucky will be released Friday, October 4th via Wicked Cool Records, have unveiled the official music video for their new single “Corner Of My Eye.” The self-produced video features the Pennsylvania band jamming out to the rock ‘n’ roll banger, with a twist. PRESS HERE to watch.
“We prefer to let the videos speak for themselves because they’re designed to let the viewer figure out the premise as they go along,” The Jellybricks shared with New Noise Magazine, who first premiered the video. “We’ll say that even though they’re a lot of work, they’re yet another way that we as a band enjoy collaborating together. We have a lot of fun making them ourselves with the help of our talented friends.”
Some Kind Of Lucky, the band’s seventh studio album, will mark their first album for Steven Van Zandt’s red-hot rock label, Wicked Cool Records, and is being released in partnership with The Orchard. The 12-song album, produced by The Jellybricks, features the previously released Big Star-influenced road song “Brooklyn“ and swirling call-and-response rocker “DOA,“ in addition to lead single “Corner Of My Eye.” All three tracks have grabbed Coolest Song in the World status on Van Zandt’s Underground Garage radio show this year. Some Kind Of Lucky was recorded at various studios on the east coast, including Van Zandt’s own Renegade Studios in NYC, and mixed by engineer Geoff Sanoff, whose credits include notable work with Bruce Springsteen, Fountains of Wayne and Dashboard Confessional.

A rock group in the classic two guitars-bass-drums tradition, The Jellybricks (Larry Kennedy [guitar, vocals], Garrick Chow [bass, vocals], Bryce Connor [guitar, vocals], Tom Kristich [drums, vocals]) began as a vehicle for Larry Kennedy‘s original songs in the mid-’90s but has steadily evolved over seven releases into a four-headed collaboration with all four members writing and singing lead. The Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-based quartet’s hook-laden songs owe debts of inspiration to decades of melodic rock ‘n’ roll from the ’60s British invasion through ’70s punk, ’80s college rock and ’90s alternative. Van Zandt began taking notice in recent years, elevating their 2012 track “Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide” to Coolest Song in the World Status. The song was later voted by listeners as “Coolest Song of 2012,” beating out tracks from Aerosmith, Bruce Springsteen, Jack White, and others. In the wake of heavy airplay on SiriusXM and syndicated terrestrial radio over the years, The Jellybricks signed to Wicked Cool at the dawn of 2019. Their mélange of styles is all in keeping with the band’s longtime ethos, as Kennedy explains. “The Jellybricks name was always intended to allow us to be as loud or as aggressive or as dark as we wanted, or to be as soft, as sentimental, or as silly as we wanted to be too. One of our early promotional tag lines was ‘Sweet like Jelly…hits you like a Brick!'”
