The Coathangers return to party punk roots with 'Merry Go Round'

Posted By on Wed, Mar 27, 2013 at 11:26 AM

Today, Suicide Squeeze Records released a new video for The Coathangers' "Merry Go Round," a song from the band's 2012 split 7-inch with Nashville rockers and former tour mates Heavy Cream. The video stars a creepy, slightly agitated masked character, who comes across as a grown-up, mascara-wearing Booji Boy. Though he dances frantically and strikes a Playgirl pose on playground equipment, the faceless character seems emotionless. In stark contrast, singer Julia Kugel shows personality in spades throughout the video. Musically, the upbeat song differs from some of the band's more serious and introspective recent material, returning the four-piece to their party punk roots.
