The video for “Everything in Twos” from the Ohio group the Sidekicks was inspired by Chaos Theory — the idea that small events have deep implications for the future. It’s a heady notion, but the group brings it to life in ways that perfectly complement their intoxicating, harmony-laden guitar pop. What starts as a simple gig at a run-of-the-mill restaurant gradually mutates until a creature wearing a monster mask designed by Patrick Matanle of ICUP wrestling appears, and the whole thing veers off into the delightfully absurd. What remains constant are the song’s charms: brimming with sun-streaked guitars and bolstered by an instantly-singable chorus, it ably demonstrates all of the Sidekicks’ charms: writing hooky, high-velocity songs that burrow gently into the brain.

The Sidekicks’ Runners in the Nerved World is out now on Epitaph Records.
