Rising Australian punks Skegss have shared their new single Bush TV ahead of their new album Rehearsal out this Friday (26th March) via Loma Vista Recordings.
While Bush TV is tinged with a feeling of bittersweet nostalgia, it also showcases the youthful intensity for which Skegss is known, and its video is a peek into the fun loving attitude that also permeates Rehearsal’s 13-track thrill ride.
The infectious track comes with a Jamieson Kerr directed video, showing the freedom of the great outdoors, from riding dirt bikes on drummer Jonny Lani’s own farm, hanging with bassist Toby Cregan’s dog Blaze, to swimming, barbecuing and drinking beers by the fire pit.
Check out the music video for Bush TV below:
On directing the video, Jamieson says “The video was a lot of fun to make. The motorbike shots were pretty wild. I was in the back of a Ute hanging off the end with my camera whilst we were pinning it around bends and bumps. At one point I got some air which was pretty scary. It was lovely to see Jonny’s farm, it was my first time out there, and it was so nice to see him in his element. It was also my first time shooting super 8, when I sent it to get developed, it didn’t turn up for ages and the post was saying it was lost in transit which was devastating, but it eventually turned up and I’m stoked with how it turned out.”
Skeggs’ forthcoming album Rehearsal is out this Friday (26th March) via Loma Vista Recordings and can be purchased from the band’s official website.
