Them Guns – Fireworks
Them Guns presenting the music video for, ‘Fireworks’
LA’s Them Guns are attempting to shine a lightweight on our darkness. “Fireworks” is all about unsuitable decisions, and the hope that your final one was your final one ever. They stalk dirty, uncared for again alleys, whipping spark-throwing chains that brilliantly, however solely briefly, illuminate the shadows. Graffiti and busted concrete litter the grim panorama.
Performance pictures intercut with the managed chaos of the video’s positively unlawful pyrotechnics, making it clear that each one will not be properly with these guys. Jittery, private space-invading digicam work and movie that’s been put by means of the wringer create a right away sense of unease. Here, a damaged mirror displays our narrator’s want to flee his previous. You can really feel the partitions closing in; it’s a room locked from the skin, and also you’re in there with them.
A single swinging naked lightbulb and shifting focus expose half-seconds of intentional facial disfigurement. You can’t conceal what rotten inside. The lyrics say all of it: “And for those who really feel that each one is misplaced / Blame it on the cash you tossed. / Nothing’s modified, I’m nonetheless the identical / Swear to god with fingers crossed.”
Them Guns began up in 2013 in Santa Cruz. The California coast could conjure photographs of sun-splashed paradise, however this city has a darkish facet, and it’s straightforward to imagine that Them Guns’ knack for taking part in polished hooks towards dirty, stomping distortion is born of their background. Principle songwriters Navarone Garibaldi and Kyle Hamood’s kinds clicked virtually immediately. Garibaldi’s vocals and guitar model have been an ideal match with Hamood’s keyboards. Garibaldi is the son of Priscilla Presley, however he’s skipping the seashore social gathering for the after-after-party. Lorenzo Perez’s minimalist swing drums and Chuck Holiday’s threatening, fuzzed-out bass spherical out Them Guns’ rhythmic rock depth.
Garibaldi is a lover of snakes, which makes a complete lot of sense within the context of “Fireworks.” The image of sin feels ever-present all through the video and of their menacing sound. Listen shut and also you would possibly hear some Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Queens of the Stone Age, Girls Against Boys, and even some Chemical Brothers.
“Fireworks” will seem on the band’s upcoming full-length, From The Shadows, due out February 22 on TLG / Ingrooves. To date they’ve hit New York, London, the west coast, and SXSW. Now, Them Guns want to make the highway their dwelling in assist of that launch.
