The five piece Seattle outfit, Campfire Ok just released their newest music video featuring the title track from their forthcoming release, When You Have Arrived.

The video starts with the protagonist (played by local musician Brad Duncan) waking from a winter slumber, to the sound of an alarm clock. The camera follows as he traverses Snoqualmie Pass in a pickup truck. Snow covers the picturesque trees and hills, providing a brilliant backdrop during the journey. Our traveler arrives at a slope, where he is joined by members of Campfire Ok for some winter revelry, in the form of snow tubing.

Campfire Ok opens for The Presidents of the United States of America at The Showbox at The Market in Seattle on Saturday, February 16th and Sunday, February 17th. Purchase tickets here. 

Members of the band will also join us on next week’s episode of SMI Radio.
