Summer Cannibals – “Can’t Tell Me No” Video

Earlier this month, Summer Cannibals announced their latest album, Can’t Tell Me No, with the incisive lead single “False Anthem.” Today, the Portland band are unleashing another new song from it, “Can’t Tell Me No,” which finds Jessica Boudreaux repeating the title phrase and “I am not your bitch” under a nervy wire of guitars and a more overarching narrative of deception and defiance.

The song’s Jonah Ray-directed music video takes place at local arcade Quarterworld, where the band works under a dickish boss played by The Simpsons executive producer and writer Bill Oakley. They dance and perform around the many games, building up to a confrontation with the boss and a concert.
