Meat Wave break the narrative in the video for ‘Bad Man’

It’s based on films such as ‘Kill The Moonlight’ and the work of Harmony Korine.

Today Chicago punk rockers Meat Wave are kicking off their latest UK tour in Brighton, but before they set off around British shores, they’ve shared another video for their latest single. The clip for ‘Bad Man’ – the latest track to be taken from their recent album ‘The Incessant’ – has been heavily inspired by movies such as ‘Kill The Moonlight’ and Harmony Korine’s ‘Gummo.’ Not sure what that means? Well, it means it’s really bloody weird. Really weird. Weirdness off the scale. Instead of trying to tell any kind of narrative (or even hint at one) the band just wanted to make something that completely went against any suggestions made by the music. So, without any rhyme of reason, our lot have cheese hats on their head, run around quite a bit (it’s not known what they’re running from, if anything) and perform ridiculous moves. There’s even a short section towards the beginning where the camera stays static in the field watching as our protagonist does… absolutely nothing. Did we mention it’s weird? Watch the video for ‘Bad Man’ and take a look at all of Meat Wave’s upcoming European tour dates below.
