Music Video: Pistol Youth, In My Eyes

Song: In My Eyes
Artist: Pistol Youth
Album: Smiling Can Backfire EP
Label: Universal Music
Notes: none
Analysis: I hadn’t ever heard of this band until today, when they officially converted me into a fan with this music video. Equal parts hilarious and horrifying, the four-piece group have their faces composited into old Golden Girls clips, and never have Dorothy, Rose, Sophia & Blanche rocked so hard. The song itself is very early-90’s Weezer, with crunchy guitars and a pop melody. This is a great example of how music videos are still the best marketing tools out there, when they are clever and can catch your attention. This shit is histerical. Put Pistol Youth on your list of bands to watch in the future.
