Sly Withers share lo-fi music video for new single ‘Breakfast’

Shot on a VHS camera

Sly Withers have shared a new music video for ‘Breakfast’, lifted from their second studio album ‘Gardens’.

The video, released today (July 28), is the fourth to be made for the album’s singles. It follows ‘Cracks’ in August 2020, ‘Bougainvillea’ in November 2020 and ‘Clarkson’ in April 2021.

Tim Elphick directed the ‘Breakfast’ clip, having worked on all of the band’s previous videos. The video, shot on a VHS camera, depicts the band members in and around suburban Perth. Guitarist Jono Mata – who sings lead vocals on the track – is centred on many of the shots, lip-syncing to the song as his bandmates loiter in the background.

Sly Withers released their second studio album ‘Gardens’ in June of 2021. The band recently appeared on triple j’s Like a Version segment to promote the album, performing ‘Clarkson’ and a cover of Coldplay‘s ‘The Scientist’.

The band also recently completed the majority of a national headlining tour after over a year of rescheduling. Pop-punk bands Columbus and Semantics served as the supports across every show.

The band’s efforts were recognised at the 2020 West Australian Music Awards in March, where Sly Withers received three nominations: Most Popular Live Act, Best Single (for ‘Cracks’) and Best Rock Act.
