This Is Our Jam Premieres: Blackbird Blackbird, "It's A War" (Video)

blackbirdstill2
San Francisco's Blackbird Blackbird (a.k.a. Mikey Maramag) has been producing blissfully catchy pop for a while now, but if you're new to his music the video for "It's A War" is a good place to start.

In a nice pairing with the track's lackadaisically-strummed guitar, the video stars Australian pro surfer Thom Pringle and model Shenay Carey as young lovers enjoying what looks to be an essentially carefree existence (unless you think finding the right wave is stressful). As we watch these two PYTs skateboard, make art, and enjoy the sunshine, it's enough to make us wonder why we're stuck twiddling our thumbs at our desks.
Check out our exclusive premiere for the video and upcoming Blackbird Blackbird tour dates below. Carpe diem, dudes.
