Punk band The Venomous Pinks debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band debuted the video for its new single “I Really Don’t Care‘ Friday. The video features the band as the performing act in the infamous prom scene from United Artists/Red Bank Films’ classic 1977 movie Carrie.
The infamous scene is re-enacted in the video for the nearly three-minute song, complete with its star starting a fire in the high school gym through her telekinetic powers. In between, the band performs its new song, highlighting what the young woman must have felt.
The song’s musical arrangement is a full-on punk composition that the genre’s purist audiences will appreciate. Its lyrical theme is taken from a real-life incident involving bassist Gaby Kaos.
Kaos discussed the inspiration behind the song’s lyrical theme in a recent interview, noting it came from her being in a mentally abusive relationship.
“My boyfriend at the time was really controlling and did not believe in my dreams of becoming a musician because he let his aspirations fall by the wayside,” she said. “I found myself at a crossroads, and decided to leave him to stay true to my music.”
“Like other bands, we’ve been dealt with negative backlash over the years, and this track really drives home that we ultimately ‘really don’t care’ about the negativity,” she added. Nothing will stop us from accomplishing our goals.”
‘I Really Don’t Care’ is featured in The Venomous Pinks’ EP I Want You. The EP is available to stream and download here.
