The new music video from Austin band, Me Nd Adam, ‘Get The Money’ is an upbeat anthem about the incessant challenge of the modern American work-life balance. Arriving today alongside an accompanying music video which perfectly parodies the iconic film, ‘Office Space’, it’s a sharp statement about being stuck in a dead-end job.
Trash-wave trailblazers Me Nd Adam are living proof that there can be no despair without hope, no discord without union, no darkness without light. The group is the depraved result of a relationship between a self-loathing egotist and a boisterous, red-headed emotional wreck who met in New Orleans, immediately hated each other, and parted ways. Yet ultimately Vince Winik and Adam Walker came to realize they had no choice but to embrace their differences and craft the emotionally turbulent, alternative pop duo, Me Nd Adam. Now living the dream in a small apartment in Austin, they’re sharing their hope-tinged despair with the world.
Known for embracing their Texas roots, Me Nd Adam fuses classic rock traditions with elements of alternative, trap and electro-pop. The sound is reminiscent of American songwriters like Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen with a twist of contemporary pop production å la Marshmello and Louis Bell. The band’s influences range from Willie Nelson to Meek Mill, Don Henley to Metro Boomin, and Oasis to Blink-182. American Songwriter noted, "Now, if that’s not the personification of the breadth of American art, then I don’t know what is!”
In the group's first release following its debut album, ‘American Drip, Part I’, the self-described "trashcan cowbois" have dropped ‘Get the Money’, an upbeat anthem about the incessant challenge of American work-life balance. The lyrics amusingly depict humourless hours wasted in the workplace, sombrely dreaming of “a better life.”
As Adam explains, “There are different things we have to do to be considered ‘normal’ members of society and most of these things are tedious and terrible. This could be your job — paying taxes, waking up to an alarm clock or going to the DMV. You’re stuck ‘paying your dues,’ as your life slips away before your eyes.”
The accompanying music video is a parody of the iconic film, Office Space. Deftly capturing the emotions of being stuck in a dead-end job, the spoof video portrays the monotony and never-ending cycle of life, lightened by a tongue-in-cheek delivery.
To date, Me Nd Adam have garnered millions of streams across DSPs and acclaim from Rolling Stone, Alt Press, American Songwriter, Wonderland Magazine and The Line of Best Fit.
