Before the Foo Fighters gear up to begin touring again in 2017, drummer Taylor Hawkins has been busy working on a solo mini album, KOTA. Today, he debuted the music video for KOTA’s eccentric and exciting single “Ranger Rover B—-.”
In the video, which takes Hawkins back to the days of VCRs and kitschy editing wipes, he stands in an empty, warehouse-like setting while the smoke rolls in and adds to the overall throwback effect.
Dressed in a brown and mustard striped tank top that is at times accompanied by a leather jacket, Hawkins sings in falsetto about a woman who did him wrong and doesn’t exactly treat people fairly. “The Range Rover b—- doesn’t wait/ But you’ll have to wait if she’s late,” he sings in a staccato-like delivery.
Between the song’s subject matter and the video’s plentiful slow motion and profile shots, there’s plenty to appreciate about this homage to the time when music videos reigned supreme. As a huge fan, Hawkins knows the era and does it right.
