Premiering today on Northwest Music Scene is a video for a song called “Crystal Bomb” from a noisy 3-piece from Seattle that call themselves Kid Leather. The song comes from the upcoming album Soft Machine that will be released on April 28, 2017.
Co-directed and edited by band leader Chris Cool, the video for “Crystal Bomb” hooks an early 90’s nostalgia of MTV music videos being played off of an old crinkled vhs. Over saturated hues interlaced with explosions, occasional drug use, slow motion shots, and cheerleaders paying tribute to a certain Seattle band’s first mainstream music video. The video for “Crystal Bomb” avoids knotty narratives and sticks to energetic performances.
The band will be playing an album release show at LoFi on April 28. Get details about that HERE.
