Video Premiers Over At Dazed
The Coathangers are an Atlanta pop-punk band that formed all the way back in 2007 and have since then built up a sizable back-cat of releases ranging from: splits, EPs and full-lengths. The concept behind them is also rather cool, “The story goes that four young women decided to start a band for the sole purpose of being able to hang out and play parties. They weren’t going to let the fact that none of them knew how to play any instruments get in the way of their having a good time.”
Sounds like the very definition of punk if you ask me.
The video premiering over on Dazed is called Drive and is as catchy and fun to listen to as you’d expect from these gals. The instruments are all simple and effective at backing up the infectious singing and while they feel like they could be overly simple, for the style of music that’s being played, it’s easy to accept.
Simple, well-crafted, catchy and a joy to listen to – a few words to describe this new video.
