A few weeks ago Brighton via Newcastle garage rock band Demob Happy revealed the fresh cut of their old song ‘Wash It Down’ which is set to be their new single which will be released on 14th August by SO Recordings.
Suitably psychedelic, the video for the song features the band drinking ‘Dream Soda’ which has been brewed up by some “cosmic wizards” according to frontman Matt Marcantonio.
There are in fact lizards in this video as the band eventually turn into some pretty vicious looking lizards towards the end after necking the soda. This could perhaps be interpreted as a video about how stupid people are that they’ll drink / do anything if it’s advertised well to them. It’s been created by the very talented Katia Ganfield who’s been working on videos with other Brighton bands such as Gang, Pink Lizards and Strange Cages.
