Potty Mouth – “Smash Hit” Video

To tide us over until their next album (slated for an early 2017 release), Band To Watch graduates Potty Mouth have unveiled director Jake Stark’s video for “Smash Hit.” The Northampton band has crafted a straightforward-in-a-good-way punk jam that’s as sarcastic as it is infectious; singer/guitarist Abby Weems plays the part of a record label, requesting that the band “give us some more of that one thing you do so well.” In response, the group shreds through “Smash Hit” in a classic white-walled video shoot à la “What’s My Age Again?” or “Mamma Mia!” with a little help from glorious slow-motion and a lot of fan-propelled trash and confetti. The hooks are killer and the tropes are hilarious (that’s two things done well, for what it’s worth). Check it out below.

Potty Mouth will open for Chvrches at two NYC shows this month, 10/15 at Radio City Music Hall and 10/16 at Terminal 5.
