As far as we know, psychedelic doo-wop didn’t exist as a genre until Okey Dokey started making it.
The Beach Boys grazed the surface during the famously aborted Smile sessions, but they certainly didn’t make it a principle vocation as the Nashville, Tennessee duo do. Composed of guitarist Johny Fisher and visual artist Aaron Martin, Okey Dokey already staked claim to that ground with their first single, “Wavy Gravy“. Their debut album, 2017’s Love You, Mean It proved that the formula worked on a full-length scale.
Today, the band has shared a brand new music video for their latest single, album high-water mark “Low Rent // Blue Skies”. The music video, which was filmed and directed in Austin by local photographer Pooneh Ghana, stars Austin comedian JT Kelley as some sort of misbehaving entrepreneurial cowboy, a banana stand, and Okey Dokey. If that description sounds equal parts awesome and confusing that’s because it is. Watch the music video premiere of Okey Dokey’s “Low Rent // Blue Skies,” below.
