Fast. Grit. And to the point. New Zealand punks, The Cavemen, bring full throttled dosages of skuzzy lines on their latest video for their lead single “Janey.” Taken from their third full-length, Nuke Earth, released earlier via Slovenly Recordings, the band’s disposal of the track’s upbeat and insanely catchy cuts are drenched in live footage for a realistic perspective of the band.
Assorted shots take the band through the streets of England as they sight see and soak up their surroundings. Taking a very D.I.Y. approach, The Caveman’s lax and carefree attitude contribute to the scurry of sounds and rapid tempo. Smoothed with power-pop chords, “Janey” deplores an attractive mix of adolescent desire. Mixed with shots from a 60s variety show, the video’s portrayal of Janey is that of fantasy from youth and more so introduces the band’s personality to the world.
