For some time I had been anticipating a video from a local band, Click Track. Straight out of La Crosse, WI. Now that I have seen and heard, I realize this band hails with edgy creativity and promising tune.
I had no idea at how the video would go or how the new song would sound. I was exposed to the above. I am greatly surprised at the catchiness of the song and the quality of the video, I felt it necessary to share with you, my friends at Mindinversion.net.

Click Track frontman Ryan Conrad and drummer Nick Elstad have hit it right with Dangerous Children. They have been writing songs and creating music for sometime, playing venues in La Crosse, and elsewhere in the Midwest. Bars, like The Cavalier, places intimate and very up close and personal. I have known Conrad to have been writing and creating music, at least, for the past 10 years, in various acts (One point I even had the pleasure of being in a band with Conrad). Seen em’ (Click Track) live a few times and they put on a high energy, professionally done show, with some fun. The live show is intense and memorable, and their sound is original, at times haunting.
The song Dangerous Children is pleasantly catchy and the video is done well. It has a hint of low-budget underground artsy film, but it remains highly effective and the songwriting speaks to quality. I can appreciate a sense of art in production, with the progression and listenability of big league acts. A song I can relate to and listen to many times before coming to a conclusion.
For a bit Conrad had been telling me to give his music a listen, I have known him forever and decided to. I had not expected it to sound so new, so crisp, and so realistic. I was happily enthusiastic. I was intrigued, the Dangerous Children video showcases Click Track and the city of La Crosse, and a library, these are 3 positives in my book.
La Crosse is a city with a lot of musical acts, but at times, sadly, with little progression and distinguishability within the ranks and genres.
However, that is not entirely true, thanks to Click Track.
If anything Click Track is a testament that the music scene in La Crosse is changing for the better-their video speaks to said change. Click Track is a breakthrough Indie rock band coming out of La Crosse, something I consider great, and they are pointed in the right direction. They deserve a listen, and for the creative video they deserve a share.
Okay, so they have a megaphone, they wear suits, and they are from La Crosse, WI. Need I say more?
The retro feel of the video, and the simple yet catchy sound have me inspired, Click Track. As Click Track shows, there is clear potential in the Midwest for indie garage rock.
