The Tripwire: Video Premiere: Stricken City, “Bella Writer”


Not sure if you guys heard, but Stricken City broke up. Too early! It's always too early, despite what anyone might say. Bands need to live out their natural lives, and their natural lives are unconditionally longer than this. Our Weezer cover band in high school? Wish we could have covered a couple songs from Maladroit, not gonna lie. Anyway. Point is, there's a difference between being done with something and being DONE with something—and Stricken City are in that weird lowercase done period where they have more music coming out and can be like THIS IS OUR LAST VIDEO EVER, and then have it be just singer Rebekah Raa alone with her instruments, super intimate, stark and sad. Watch the video up above, listen to a preview of the final album Losing Colour below, and then depending on how much energy you have, either call up your old friends to jam in the garage or make a Jay-Z/LCD Soundsystem retirement joke.
