SPB premiere: "Some Girls" by The Pretty Flowers

SPB premiere: "Some Girls" by The Pretty Flowers

Hailing from sunny Los Angeles, CA, The Pretty Flowers pull a number of influences together for a melodic, soothing r ‘n’ r sound that leans on the classics. Scene Point Blank is excited to share a new video for the song “Some Girls” off last year’s Why Trains Crash (Dirt Cult Records).

Digging into those influences, the band’s Noah Green explains, “’Some Girls’ was written after listening to one of the Rhino Records Nuggets compilations and the Guided By Voices Isolation Drills album.”

The video, directed by Joshua Giuliano, was shot the same day as a previous video for “Electrical,” off the same album.

Green expands on its inspiration:

Originally we were going to just do the "Electrical" video, and got to talking about how doing another video that could be shot on the cheap at a single location would be feasible to do that weekend, too. The location wound up being my tiny garage. We loved the simplicity of Buzzcocks "What Do I Get? video, which is just the band performing in front of a white background, and we shot for something similar to that for the "Some Girls" video. Our video has the addition of a cameo by our bass player Sam's dog, Bogie.

The band is currently working on a new album with an expected release in early 2020. Since Why Trains Crash, The Pretty Flowers also released a covers album named Golden Beat Sessions.


Upcoming shows:
September 26 at Little Joy, Los Angeles
October 6 at at The Lexington, Los Angeles
Video director Giuliano is directing a masked killer movie named River, set to being filming next year.

SPB premiere: "Mood Swings & Roundabouts" by Don't Worry

SPB premiere: "Mood Swings & Roundabouts" by Don't Worry

There’s a lot of exciting news about upcoming projects from Essex/London’s Don’t Worry. The band has a new acoustic EP out soon and a UK tour, along with a brand new video to share below.

 The song “Mood Swings & Roundabouts” comes off last year’s Who Cares Anyway? album.

“It’s a song about getting older and wondering if you’re doing life right. Did you choose the right path, or are you wasting your time? It’s also about being fed up, and the old chestnut of having a love/hate relationship with your hometown,” says guitarist/vocalist Ronan Kehoe.

SPB let the band speak to the merits of the video itself, going into great and inspiring detail:

In the first spoken word part of the song I say the line “I am nothing but a forgotten trout, lying on the bench covered in sand and gasping for air.” This is the main inspiration for the music video. We thought we’d take the imagery from that line and take it much further, probably way too far. So I dressed up as an actual trout and went out and about getting up to various fishy mischief: attacking Alex because he’s eating my mate from the fish & chip shop, chatting with the other fishy folk at the aquarium, screaming at some frozen fish fingers. You know, fish stuff. 

We’ve never had any real budget to make any of our music videos, and so we’ve always been conscious that if we were to try to make something serious, we’d probably just end up making fools of ourselves. So we make videos on little to no budget that are hopefully funny or at least just ridiculous and therefore entertaining instead. This is one of the most serious tracks from our album but perhaps the silliest video we’ve made so far. We hope you like it! The rubber fish mask absolutely stunk and I couldn’t get rid of the smell for days afterwards. 

Catch the band next month on the “One Year On and Still Nobody Cares” UK tour.
Who Cares Anyway? is available on red vinyl and CD via Specialist Subject Records.
August tour dates:
20th - Norwich, Rabbit
21st - Liverpool, Craft Taproom
22nd - Glasgow, Bloc
23rd - Cheltenham, Frog & Fiddle
24th - Exeter, Cavern
