Toledo Ohio based project Equipment has premiered a video for brand new single “One or Both”. The premiere was hosted by Clrvynt who said “Equipment expertly weaves pretty real feelings and emotions into good-natured pop-rock.”
“The video was really fun to shoot.” Nick Stoup said, “For some reason I really like seeing how uncomfortable I can make myself without finally calling it quits. I break a guitar for the first time in the video, which probably symbolizes something. Shooting didn’t take very long, yet paint was still coming out of my ear the next day.”
Equipment’s debut EP Chump was was released November 25th via All Sounds and Counter Intuitive Records. They have released their first single “Commuter” for free download on Bandcamp. “Commuter” is a perfect introduction, in under three minutes Equipment cycles through jazzy arpeggios, fuzzed out power chords, and heart-on-sleeve lyrics, all about the commuter college angst.
Equipment is the brain child of 19 year old wunderkind Nick Stoup, who combines the immediacy of the great 90s power pop bands (Weezer, early Green Day) with the youthful DIY energy of bands like Modern Baseball or Carseat Headrest.
