EVERYBODY LOVES VAINS OF JENNA WHEN THEY’RE DEAD
I totally appreciate what Vains of Jenna do. Their brand of ’80s hair/cock metal revivalism comes off a whole lot more genuine than that of their many American counterparts; for one they aren’t being ironic, and for two they’re pretty darn good. Sure, these Swedes ain’t reinventing the wheel here but they make a damn fine one that gets you from point A to point B in a flurry of classic blues-based rock riffs. And they don’t look like a bunch of tool-bags suffering from NSS (Nikki Sixx Syndrome).
So Vains of Jenna have a new video for the track “Everyone Loves You When You’re Dead.” I really like the faux-performance part and love the way it’s shot; in particular, I like how the color red kind of highlights everything throughout. I have no idea what the fuck is going in with the naked-feathered-chicks-in-the-forest subplot, however, but I assume there’s something behind it I’m just missing. Either way, cool song and cool video.
