    Portland, OR-based group The Domestics are out with their new video for "Tunnels and Trains," and in it, they take us on the road trip of a lifetime. Wild things happen -- they find a stuffed animal in the middle of the road, encounter some scary, chain-smoking strangers, and even run into a beautiful girl. Leo London, who wrote the song, told us about it, "The band was sleeping in as long as they could and I got up and walked around Boston for a bit. I came back to the van and wrote the song front to back in 20 minutes. In Minneapolis we stayed with Kraig Johnson of The Jayhawks and as we were leaving his place he told us we were living other people's dreams. Our tour had been off to a rocky start so I thought that was pretty funny. I had left Portland with 80 dollars and was living off of buyouts from each venue. I'm really excited for the next tour. It started to get fun when it was almost over."

    Sonically, the song is fitting for the video. With Kings of Leon-esque guitars and fuzzy vocals reminiscent of The Districts, the song sounds like the soundtrack to a perfect summer road trip.

    Frontman Michael Finn added, "It was our second time working with Martin Melnick on a music video, who is a total champion. He wrote and directed a devastatingly sad music video for a song off our first record called Beauty Contest, and there are a lot of Easter eggs scattered throughout this video that tie the two together. Historically, I have about as much interest in making music videos as I do walking headfirst into a closed door, but Martin makes it fun."

    "Tunnels and Trains" is off of the band's sophomore album, Little Darkness, out September 1st. You can preorder it here.
