Shy Kids – ® o c k e t s [Official Video]

Shy Kids are a Toronto-based group of three musicians, filmmakers, roommates and best friends who recently put the finishing touches on their debut album, titled Lofty! The title was inspired by their Kensington Market loft where they made the album and debut music video for the first single “Ⓡ o c k e t s”.

The music video for “Ⓡ o c k e t s” premiered yesterday and the characters, places and objects in the music video were built entirely out of candy (which took about 9 months and $600 worth). Conceptualized and created from start to finish by the members of shy kids; from sourcing the candy, imagining the plot-line and all of the editing.

Even though right now their focus is on their music, they have strong roots and a background in film. You may have seen a documentary they premiered in 2013 called Noah which received critical acclaim and won best short film at the TIFF festival that year.
