Desert Sharks has made a music video showing us exactly what it is we all miss the most: seeing kick ass bands perform live.
On the heels of a nonstop year of performances that landed them on Oh My Rockness’s list of New York City’s Hardest Working Bands of 2018, Desert Sharks brings in elements from iconic ‘90s bands Sleater-Kinney, L7, Veruca Salt, and Toadies into their musical performance.
Baby’s Gold Death Stadium (recorded live in a Brooklyn basement studio) showcases their guitar-driven brand of grunge-garage punk. The track “Sorceress” embraces personal power and challenges the dismissal of the aging woman.
Directed and edited by Dave Ball, and filmed by Liam Mejia and Ian Chen, the music video for “Sorceress” features witchy shots from around New York City and shots from a live show (at Brooklyn’s DIY space Pet Rescue), which is reminiscent of the backdrop at The Moth Club in London. Desert Sharks proves to us that not only do they know how to make damn good music but they look good doing it.
Here’s hoping we have a Freaky Friday moment where they swap bodies for mine because, well, I would do anything to be Desert Sharks for a day.
Watch “Sorceress” below.
