SKATERS’ new music video for “Miss Teen Massachusetts” was like something out of an American Horror Story plot line, except the FX series has so far lacked one critical film noir element: a girl spitting on a guitar. The scene is about three minutes in and it’s amazing. The Danilo Parra directed video effortlessly combines the video’s nostalgic 1960’s aesthetic with SKATERS’ smooth post-punk sound, creating something of a time warped music video. It’s an entertaining watch to hold us over until the band’s debut album comes out. February 25, we’re so close.
Their debut album, Manhattan, comes out on February 25, 2014 and the band will be celebrating the release with an album party show the night before, February 24th, at Bowery Ballroom.
SKATERS is Michael Ian Cummings, Noah Rubin, Joshua Hubbard.
