We’ve been talking about Cocktails a great deal lately, with good reason. The songs that they’ve shared from their debut EP, “Hey Winnie” and “No Blondes (In California)”, are fantastic garage pop tunes, they’re booking fun shows, and now they’ve added a great video to the mix. The video for “Hey Winnie”, which was directed and produced by Cocktails guitarist/keyboardist Lauren Matsui, features the band robbing a thrift store (No Shop in the Mission), while a slicked-up knife-wielding Joel Cusumano (of DSTVV) is just a little late to save the day.

Did I mention Cocktails are booking fun shows? It just so happens that they are playing the Night Light in Oakland with Warm Soda and Bad Vibes February 23, just got added to the Mac DeMarco show at the Rickshaw Stop April 3, and are planning an April tour with Primitive Hearts in support of the EP release. You can also see more of Joel Cusumano’s sweet ‘stache at the FREE Bay Bridged Noise Pop Happy Hour March 1 if you’re into that sort of thing.

Without further ado, here’s Cocktails’ video for “Hey Winnie”:
