    Pacific Avenue

    NSW South Coast lads Pacific Avenue are back with a new rock'n'roll-tinged indie rock tune called My Hero, complete with a wholesome music video featuring comedian/influencer duo The Inspired Unemployed (who you may remember from our ARIA Awards red carpet content last year).

    The song is a rollicking tune that calls to mind the warm, relatable tunes of Hockey Dad or The Vanns, with the band explaining the song is about meeting someone on holidays who blows your mind. It's got a certain stadium rock quality to it, while still feeling like it's a song by your mates down the road.

    "The whole concept of My Hero came when singer Harry O’Brien met someone on holidays in a fleeting moment, who he thought he would never see again. Although the interaction was brief, every aspect of this person amazed him and drew him in. This person had all the beautiful things that made you be able to stop and forget about the world for a minute, and with music that’s exactly what we want to help people do as well."

    However, instead of depicting a romantic connection in the video, the band called on their mates Jack and Matt in The Inspired Unemployed to showcase the feeling of being awed by someone you've admired forever - a sporting hero.

    "We decided to express this idea in an innocent, relatable way by creating the story of two young, surfy nippers who become star struck when they get to compete at the beach against their hero named, ‘The Dolphin’. With inspiration from the line, ‘You can be my hero, if you’d only remember my name’, their ‘hero’ largely ignores the boys until needing rescue from his two admirers later in the race."

    It's a super cute video filmed at a Kiama beach, local to both the band and The Inspired Unemployed. Get around it!
