Weston Simonis Releases Official Music Video 'Yoga Pants'
The songwriter, singer and guitarist known as Weston Simonis has released his latest official video, “Yoga Pants.” The track has been distributed online worldwide and is available for viewing now. Showcasing Simonis' considerable guitar chops, a bevy of yoga beauties and a driving rock beat, “Yoga Pants” is a video with plenty to offer the music fan.
Weston Simonis cites as main artistic influences Bruno Mars, Metallica, and Blink 182. His own style on “Yoga Pants” lies somewhere between pop and hard rock music with elements of hip hop thrown in for good measure. The star of the show, however, is clearly the yoga pants, with a good sense of humor coming in a close second.
Asked to describe his new video, Simonis writes, “The music video 'Yoga Pants' is a comedy pop/rock song. The song shares the silly dream you see of being the only guy in a fitness or yoga class and the yoga pants are so tight that you can't focus on anything but them.”
TunedLoud.com says of “Yoga Pants,” “[The video] absolutely confirmed that and why I was willing to support this guy from the beginning. What seems to be happening is that he is subtly tweaking his songs toward a clever mainstream, but still alternative sound. Being able to experiment with his songs, altering the sound, deepening the meaning, shows his strength as a performer and artist. With more freedom Weston is stretching way beyond the mainstream sound, yet still remaining extremely accessible.”
JamSphere notes that his record, 'Moments of Intoxication,' was named Best Indie Alternative Rock album of 2016 at the International Publisher Awards and has since garnered more than 20 licenses for film and radio distribution.
“Weston’s voice and guitar conveys a relentless quest to rise above a world of desperation and hopelessness,” writes JamSphere's Jacob Aiden. “His music has a sense of – tell the truth, cleanse the soul, feel good, and keep on pushing. At the same time it’s clear that Simonis values tradition as well as he does modernity, and links between past and present in his music, it is also evident that his vision has expansive boundaries.”
