Sleeper Agent premiered their new video for “That’s My Baby” yesterday and it’s awesome. The video features the band’s Alex Kandel and Tony Smith performing the song at a karaoke bar with almost too real backdrops. Directed by singer/guitarist Tony Smith, the video’s inspiration “came from a lack of sleep and too much time away from home” said Smith. “I wanted it to be dreamlike; something that’s relatively normal but seems ‘off’.”

I’ve been waiting for a chance to catch Sleeper Agent live since last July, and this weekend the dates will finally work out. I first discovered the band reading Spin Magazine, who featured them in their “Breaking Out” segment. The 6 piece band from Bowling Green originally came together after guitarist Tony Smith and drummer Justin Wilson found barista turned singer Alex Kandel performing at open mic’s. They’ll be in Chicago Saturday night in support of Ben Kweller, who recently released a new album titled Go Fly a Kite, at Lincoln Hall at 10 PM. Tickets are sold out, so check out Craigslist if you weren’t lucky enough to get one.
