The clip for ‘Couch Potato’ follows a girl (Couch Potato) who’s relaxed view on life gains her father’s disapproval.
The playful video is brought to life by the band’s irresistible blend of fresh vocals, jangle guitars and sailing hip hop beats, and was recently screened across national TV – adding a comical shade to an airing of Channel 7’s Highway Patrol.
As well as the upcoming ‘Life’s A Beach’ Australian tour, Jakubi will soon be releasing their debut EP and announcing a follow-up tour of the US for 2015.
Neil Patrick Harris looked like he was having a blast during the Tuesday night premiere of Best Time Ever, his new variety series. Perez actually contributed to NPH's autobiography, cleverly titled Choose Your Own Autobiography, in which Harris calls him "an older, wiser Perez Hilton." Sounds like the hatchet (if there ever was one) is totally buried and now they're friends who support each other. I think it's about time NPH erase that from all of our memories by inviting the actress on the show and doing a funny segment with her that'll have us saying, "What lockbox?
Adding to what has been an incredible 18 months for the band comes the announcement of a co-management deal with major US player 7s Management (The Dandy Warhols, Dinosaur Jr) as well as securing a spot on the artist roster with UK’s renowned Coda Agency for all European bookings.
To celebrate, and to see the year out, the boys have one more Australian tour up their sleeves; an 11 date summer run through some of Australia’s most picturesque coastal towns that has been cleverly named ‘Life’s A Beach.’ The overwhelming response to their latest single ‘Couch Potato’ has swept across the globe.
After recently topping over half a million Soundcloud streams and over a million more on You Tube, the group have gained the praise of heavyweights Okayplayer, Hilly Dilly and the king of pop culture commentary himself, Perez Hilton, who said, “It’s so dope!
But Twitter spotted another face in the crowd: Perez Hilton was in the audience of Best Time Ever, but why? It's always fun to see these two hosts with the most together.The entertainment columnist and personality was spotted in the front row of the show, along with Harris' husband David Burtka. And you can count on NPH to have a great time with it all. Throughout the show, I waited for Hilton to make an appearance on stage throughout all the antics, pranks, and fun — but alas, Perez stayed put in the audience. After selling out venues as part of their mammoth tour of Australia, the US and Canada, Melbourne five-piece Jakubi are already looking forward to an exciting 2015.
Releasing their first single, Can’t Afford It All, midway through 2013 the band have grown from strength to strength and they show no signs of slowing down.
Remember that awkward lockbox joke from this year's Oscars?
