Carsex Offers Sociopolitical Commentary In New Single, Video

July 8 — Independent rock act Carsex unveiled its latest single and video recently. The band premiered its new single, ‘Crooked Canvas‘ late last month, along with the song’s companion video.

The musical arrangement featured in the band’s recently released single is a DIY garage punk style composition that is grounded in its gritty guitar riff and equally rough vocals. It is easily comparable to works from the likes of Jet, The Hives, and The Strokes.

Front man Nigel Burk talked about the sociopolitical commentary in the band’s new single in a prepared statement.

“’Crooked Canvas’ is about the metaphorical wool being pulled over people’s eyes and the blind, general consumption of what’s being put forth,” Burk said. “Whether it’s politics, religion, what shoes to buy, which pill will make your dick bigger. It’s about consumerism at its finest and my distaste for it.”

Bassist Jeremy Schott added to the conversation, discussing the song’s video treatment.

“The music video was shot by our pals Brad Walther and Jason Lazo at Big Walrus Productions in Long Beach,” said Schott. “We worked with them on our last video for “Your Generation”. We shot the video on a church set, keeping with the theme of the song being about the public being told how to think and what to consume – and blindly doing so. Steven Burhoe of Plague Productions edited the video.“

According to information in a news release announcing the debut of the band’s new single and video, the band is working on a new EP, which is expected for release this year. The release does not state whether the new song will be part of that record. An exact release date for the EP is under consideration.
