World Premiere Video: Midland’s “Drinkin’ Problem”

Look out, officers. The members of Midland are on the run and having way too much fun in their new video for “Drinkin’ Problem.”

One part Dukes of Hazzard and one part Smokey and the Bandit, the video for “Drinkin’ Problem” is all action and outlaw. Romancing the pretty girls, running moonshine– and most importantly, running from the law — the boys of Midland absolutely nail the retro-modern interpretation.

So speaking of drinkin’, what are the cocktails of choice for these thirsty fellas? No moonshine here.

Lead singer-guitarist Mark Wystrach loves Gem & Bolt mescal on the rocks with lemon, bassist-vocalist Cameron Duddy prefers a mescal mule, and guitarist-vocalist Jess Carson opts for tequila and grapefruit juice.

Meanwhile, I’m just drunk off this incredible music the guys are serving up from their five-song debut EP. I guess that means I have a Midland problem … which is really no problem at all.
