I think most guys will relate to this video. You know how it is: just when you think you're over a breakup, she chases you away from band practice, forcing you to leap from an overpass. Then somehow you find yourself in a DART train, pursued yet again into [shudder] the West End, and as if that's not eerie enough, she ... well, I'll stop there and not spoil the ending of this new Cocky Americans video for "Romance Tried To Kill Me."

This impressive video is produced by Kevin and Kelly Luu, collectively known as The Luu Brothers, with visual effects by Eric Rinehart.

And if you can't wait till NX35 to hear more of Cocky Americans' Strokes-loving straightforward garage rock, they'll be at Andy's Bar in Denton Saturday night.  

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
