VIDEO PREMIERE: Los Angeles pop-punks Cold Weather Kids get animated, with “You’re My Player 2”

(LOS ANGELES, CA – February 17th, 2021) Los Angeles pop-punk trio Cold Weather Kids have premiered a fun-filled new music video for “You’re My Player 2”.

The video pays homage to front man Ryan Scottie’s passion for animation and the artistic inspiration that evolved from childhood video gaming.

“You’re My Player 2” is taken from the band’s new EP ‘Quarantunes’, out now and streaming via Spotify and Apple Music.

Cold Weather Kids spoke exclusively to The Noise, to discuss the new release.


Despite now calling Los Angeles home, Adam Allison, Ryan Scottie and Erik Williams are truly Cold Weather Kids. Growing up in Michigan, Wisconsin and Colorado respectively, friendship and music saw the three men come together for the release of 2020’s debut EP ‘Songs We Can’t Finish’.

Having met while attending a Chicago college, Adam Allison and Ryan Scottie’s friendship saw the pair move to Los Angeles in 2016. The inception of Cold Weather Kids would be set in motion with Allison getting a job at Revolution 9 Recording Studios. It was at Rev 9 Recording where Adam met Erik Williams, completing the trio.

Deploying a vibrant and hook-heavy brand of pop-punk, Cold Weather Kids hone the best of the throwback, 00s incarnation of the genre, with a thoughtful and angst-laced execution that draws on the band’s present day contemporaries.

Following on from their debut EP ‘Songs We Can’t Finish’, sophomore effort ‘Quarantunes’, was created during the hardship of the pandemic and delivers equal doses of reflection and positivity. With Nick Radovanovic (Grandson, Mister Wives, Stand Atlantic) and Justin Perkins (Screaching Weasel) behind the controls, ‘Quarantunes’shows Cold Weather Kids quickly progressing to a pop-punk breakout that LA will be hearing more from in 2021.

New music video for “You’re My Player 2” (YouTube) sees Cold Weather Kids combine their greatest passions and bely the creative limitations of lockdown.
