The newest clip from Osaka Punch is as goofy as ‘Drones’ itself is groovy.
If you’re coming to watch an Osaka Punch film clip and are expecting artistic subtlety or thought-provoking imagery, then you’re barking up the wrong tree, buckaroo. However, if you came to watch a goofy music video from a great band who don’t take themselves too seriously – packing in Tarantino vibes and a cool little ‘Bohemian Rhapsody‘ reference – and have a good little time, then park yourself down in front of our music video premiere today for ‘Drones.’
Yet underneath all of the Queensland band’s silliness in this new video about a tense, seedy poker-Uno game suddenly turned violent, ‘Drones‘ is actually a track about those selfish, self-aggrandizing bastards who can only see as far as their own noses; who only care when their greedy wallets are threatened. Enigmatic vocalist Jack Muzak said of the new track that it’s about the myopic cretins who think that their shit doesn’t stink and who will only stand for themselves, even when the world is on the brink of collapse, sharing that:
“Some people stand for what’s right, others stand for only themselves. While the Greta Thunbergs, Martin Luther Kings, and Michael Boltons of the world hold a light up to the injustices that plague our society, cretins still stand atop an Everest of evil, pissing in the wind. But when all the resources are gone, the last river has dried, and society has cannibalized itself to oblivion, they can rest upon their mountain, licking yellow snow cones, and wiping their arses with $100 bills.“
Similar to their previous single, ‘Hall Of Shame,’ ‘Drones‘ (which dropped earlier this week) has all of the Osaka Punch trade-marks in spades, but never once sees these parts becoming tiresome or boring. Monstrous grooves and Chrispy Town’s big-ass guitar riffs abound, with Jack’s playful growls, heavy screams, and angelic upper register taking the songs infectious “Not a lot of money for a guy like you” hook by storm, all of which sits nicely over the top of Dane Pulvirenti’s tight and tasteful percussive punches. ‘Drones‘ is yet another big win for an insanely consistent Australian band who don’t even seem capable of having a bad song in their creative bones.
