Dave Yow from The Jesus Lizard features in the punk trio’s colourful new video. See/hear “Play House” now. European tour this October
Skating Polly have shared a new video for standalone single “Play House”, which is out now via El Camino Media. The fiery trio will also be touring Europe this October, including several live dates in the UK.
Drenched in neon and make-believe, the video for “Play House” was directed by Pancake Mountain’s Scott Stuckey and features a cameo from David Yow, frontman of Chicago noise-rock greats, The Jesus Lizard. Skating Polly explain: “From the day we wrote the song we knew we had to have an equally trippy, colorful video. We also knew right away that we wanted to work with Scott Stuckey again because he always makes really creative big picture ideas come to life. We filmed at Pancake Mountain Headquarters in Los Angeles with an incredibly gifted team under the madcap direction of Scott. Sunday’s Best Thrift in Echo Park and Scorpio Rising in Tacoma supplied us with the best outfits & we had the coolest, craziest group of kids to work with (so crazy they all argued about who was gonna get to break the most stuff). David Yow became a fan of ours a couple weeks before we recorded the song and he’s known Scott for a long time so he was happy to play the chaos facilitating butler.”
