Local punk trio release video for latest hit single “I Don’t Wanna”
Lady Deathstryke, a Saskatoon-based power-punk band, have released a video for their song “I Don’t Wanna”.
Shot and edited by vid-kid Tyler Baptist (Bad Monster Films), the video documents bassist Luke Brisebois slackin’ amidst a furiously catchy punk soundtrack. It’s completely cute and adorable, but vocalist Dan Smolinski says that the idea behind the film was something of a middle finger response. Which is also kind of adorable.
“I had this concept in my head to juxtapose Luke in a lethargic, procrastinating state with this quick little song,” says Smolinski. “People are always snowboarding or being lamely intense in a lot of rock videos and I just wanted ours to be the exact opposite.
“On that note though we’re still not taking ourselves seriously as anyone can tell.”
