Kapowski – Section 8 (Video)
Oakland based band Kapowski (band website) have released a video for the song Section 8”, off of their upcoming album Boy Detective (set for release on February 2, 2012). The tune features stuttering drums, a spry bass line, a scratchy organ and a mesmeric piano line that sets the foundation for lead vocalist Jesse Rimler’s lyrics.
Filmed on location in Oakland by The Perez Brothers, along with additional footage shot in the tiny town of Carpinteria, the video for Section 8” was inspired by the futuristic tone of the track. Pulling from their love of classic cinema, the Perez Brothers have described the film as a, Melancholy homage to Woody Allen’s Sleeper.”
While the Sleeper elements are there, I personally liken the look of the Robot without meaning in the video to that ridiculous Robin William’s vehicle Bicentennial Man. Quirky and fun, The Perez Bothers Kapowski take the phrase Section 8 and turn it’s meaning on it’s head. What happens when you lose your will to live? The answer is: drink a bunch of sweet tea and go into a sugar coma.
I hate sweet tea.
