S is the indie-rock solo project of Seattle’s Jenn Ghetto. We premiered the former Carissa’s Wierd vocalist’s gorgeous heartbreak- and pop-driven album Cool Choices last year, and she’s already shared videos for LP tracks “Losers,” “Vampires,” and “Tell Me“. Now she follows up with the debut of her tabloid parody video for “Like Gangbusters!” directed by Stacy Peck. It features home-video styled footage, as Ghetto becomes a resilient target of paparazzi-like scenesters who follow her every move. She gets criticized with faux headlines for carrying out mundane activities, like waiting for the bus and washing clothes at a laundromat (you know, things only washed-up rock stars do!). But haters gonna hate, and Ghetto could care less, smiling and chiming in with lyrics like “You will not take me down.” She even breaks out in an adorable group-dance in the coffee shop where she works. Watch below.
