The Rad Trads Capture The Ikea Life In New Video “My Place”

Breezy indie pop

Nestled between perfectly symmetric shelves and urban décor, The Rad Trads show us how clean and suffocatingly organized life would be if we lived in Ikea in new video “My Place.” We don’t believe this video was sponsored by Ikea coz the quintet filmed everything while trying to not get caught by Ikea employees – it was like stepping on eggshells. The song is a breezy midtempo piece that exudes the warming charm of home. Watch below:

“It was two intensely fun (and awkward) days of guerrilla-style shooting in various Ikea display rooms and while I didn’t originally write the song with the Swedish chain in mind, there’s no unlinking the two now.” shared The Rad Trads’ Alden Harris-McCoy.

“My Place” is from the band’s latest album On Tap, which was released back in September 14, 2018. The quintet will be playing a show tonight and officially kick off their summer tour next month. Go see them:
