CAPTAINS DEAD by The Coathangers.
The phone rings. It's Julia from The Coathangers. They just finished a new track the band is very excited about, but they're heading out on tour and need a music video shot ASAP. Can we put something together quickly?
I actually love these situations, because when you're up against a clock, you can't overthink ideas. As an artist, you just react, trust your instincts, and make art for the sake of art. Such was the case on "Captains Dead". It's a dark, threatening song. It made me glad I was the subject of their ire. This sounded like dangerous ladies. Which led me to the gang of back up cheerleaders; knive play, and monster masks. Somehow, it all works.
A massive shout out to The PBR Music foundation who helped make this video possible. I love it when a great brand supports art for the sake of art!
