SONIC SYNDICATE RELEASE SECOND TERRIBLE VIDEO IN AS MANY MONTHS
I’ve never read an interview with Sonic Syndicate and there’s a better-than-average chance that I never will, but if I did and one of them said that they counted Take That or the Backstreet Boys as a key influence, I would not be at all surprised. How else to explain this garbage? “My Own Life” isn’t a metal song, and I’d argue that it’s not even a rock song — it’s pop music, plain and simple. And bad pop music. And the video is awful — and comes just two months since the band last released an awful video.
The highlight? Bassist Karin Axelsson, who advocates feminism by showing her boobs, but demonstrating that she’s, y’know, really upset up about it.
I heard a rumor that Sonic Syndicate sell dysentery at their shows instead of t-shirts, but I’ve yet to be able to confirm that. Sounds about right, though.
