Bleached released their new Can You Deal? EP today, along with its accompanying zine featuring a strong set of contributors, and they’ve also shared a new video for its title track that shows the Los Angeles group as the only human band in a world full of mutants that have one eye bulging out of their head. The video was directed by Ryan Baxley. Here’s what the band’s Jennifer Clavin has to say about the vid:
When Ryan told us his idea for this video we were excited because it reminded us of a Twilight Zone episode. In this story, our ‘human band’ is viewed as extraterrestrial to the alien world, and we are trying to put an end to the exploitive media station known as ‘Singular World News.’ We loved the idea of taking what this song is about, how being women in music is still viewed as a novelty, to a more dramatic level where we the humans are the aliens in this alternate society.
