[as seen on Under The Radar]
Boston-based DIY veterans Kal Marks have shared their video for their new single "Kimmy," off of their forthcoming Let The Shit House Burn Down EP, due out September 27 via Exploding in Sound Records, and we are pleased to premiere it. The video features vintage cartoons slashing through as an onslaught of phantmasgoric visuals pass through grainy VHS style footage of the band performing. The track is a churning miasma conjuring the sound of sirens wailing with feedback pumping through the breathless dynamics. Check out the video below.
On the making of the track, the band had this to say:"Kimmy is a nonsense song. I think I may be building a reputation for writing emotional, deep, dark songs, so just wanted to do something absurd and without meaning. Not every song has to be philosophical pondering on life, because honestly a lot of times there is no rhyme or reason to our time here. The song is ridiculous musically too. Caveman rhythms, quick twists and turns, and really no standard structure. Some of lyrics I can't even remember. They could just be gibberish. Its named after a friend that is absurd and unfiltered, so that was the inspiration. It's a fun exercise to give in to the meaningless."
