Pontiak – “We’ve Got It Wrong” Video (Stereogum Premeire)
The Virginia power trio Pontiak released INNOCENCE, an absolutely thunderous slab of majestic psych-rock, earlier this year, and we posted the album’s title track and the video for “Wildfires.” Drummer Lain Carney, the youngest of the three brothers in the band, directed the new video for “We’ve Got It Wrong.” In the video, frontman Van plays a baller-ass ’70s-style playboy, while his two bandmates loom as shadowy presences. I’m not sure if I can even explain why this thing is so badass, but it absolutely is. The band is on tour right now, and you should definitely go see them. (I’m friends with them, but I’d still say this if I weren’t.) Watch the video and check out their tour dates below.
