"Same Old, Same Old" by Coasting
Brighten up a chilly February day with Coasting's new video for their song "Same Old, Same Old." The band, made up of members of Vivian Girls and The Coolies, has a sound that's a bit '60s surf and a bit Blondie. All good fun, and it shows in their collage-driven video, which goes from mid-century kitsch straight up to Sid and Nancy punk, some of it in the style of artist Richard Hamilton. There's a healthy dose of stripes and even a scene featuring a pair of Chance Skinny Stripe tank look-alikes. Enjoy.
