Video: Naomi Punk, “Burned Body”

August 15, 2012

If you are in a rock band in 2012, it often feels like the best possible goal you could have for yourself is figuring out how to translate all your energy and emotion into every song you release in a sort of whatever-minute cathartic release of angst and anger and/or happiness or whatever else. Naomi Punk are great at this. "Burned Body" stomps and howls and trips over itself in the best way, like this was actually just a rough version of a song and when they got done recording it, they realized it worked just fine as is. The video made by Robin Stein, Margaret Jones & Jesse Brown, is mostly stark black and white stop motion, isn't going to change your world, but it'll make you want to feel something—whatever that something is will probably be just fine.
