We’re pleased as punch to premiere the new video from Seattle’s So Pitted from their debut LP Neo: ragged, nonlinear, a little dangerous, “rot in hell” was one of the first tracks So Pitted wrote together, and the video is funny and surreal, featuring a friend of the band playing various band members. It feels like being at home at a basement show, ready to hit your head on a low ceiling bringing your amp down the stairs, buzzing with a little bit of nausea and excitement. It burns with the urgency of the music you need to make or you’ll crumple, music you’d be making whether other people heard it or not.
Says So Pitted’s Nathan Rodriguez of the band and creative release: “This was also the first time I’ve ever been able to really scream the way I can scream now; before, it didn’t come from a place where it was necessary and fell flat and seemed silly. But when we wrote those songs it happened so easily where I could scream to them and it made me feel powerful. These songs give me an access to strength I didn’t have before.”
Neo will be released February 19, 2016 on Sub Pop.
