[NEWS] Dead On TV – Screwdriver

Garage/Punk band Dead on TV has released their Official Video for “Screwdriver” off of the sophomore EP, Creeper.

“Screwdriver” turned out to be an interesting experiment for us as a band. We had been trying to figure out how we could make a song that wasn’t blazing fast. Once we had a groove that felt appropriately sleazy, the lyric came really easy, like you would hope a song about handjobs would. Now it’s one of our favorite songs and it’s probably the most requested song we get from fans. When we came to deciding to make a video for it, I saw this amazing space with a red curtain and instantly thought of Twin Peaks. We’re all fans of David Lynch and wanted to do a creepy video for this song and the pieces just fell right into place.” Daniel Evans/VocalsWatch Dead on TV explains.

Garage/朋克樂隊 Dead on TV 發布歌曲 Screwdriver 官方視頻。主唱 Daniel Evans 解釋説:「對我們來說 Screwdriver 是個有趣的實驗。我們嘗試找出如何能製作一首非快速的歌曲。一旦我們摸索到如何製作輕鬆有趣的旋律,就很容易配上歌詞。關於這個視頻,拍攝地點的紅色帷幕令人想起電視劇 Twin Peaks。我們都是此劇導演 David Lynch 的影迷,所以希望製作一個令人毛骨悚然的視頻。」
