Bad Moves

Long live power-pop! I can’t get enough of that spry, shreddy sound, and Washington D.C.’s Bad Moves put their own superb punk spin on it. Their debut LP, Tell No One, is heaps of fun, even as these four friends sing about the mundanity of young adulthood, failed relationships and the long arm of childhood. But these part-time punks make it all sound like a hoopla as opposed to a drag, churning out the cathartic, jubilant kind of rock ‘n’ roll that never goes out of style

Last fall, DC punks Bad Moves released their debut LP Tell No One on Don Giovanni Records, and they’ve now made a video for its song “Wishing.” The video was made by co-lead-singer David Combs (also of Spoonboy, The Max Levine Ensemble, and SOMNIA), who tells us:

The song “Wishing” is about the expectations that adults project onto children, and the music video is made up of some old footage I took a few years ago of my then 2 year old housemate dressed as the Grim Reaper. She’s 5 now and when I asked her if I could use the footage, she said “yeah, I don’t need it anymore.”

David’s description should give you a good idea of what to expect from this hazy video, which pairs well with the song, which is one of the calmer songs on the album.
