Straight out of a scene from one of those high school mean girls movies, LA’s Egg Drop Soup have dropped a pretty amazing video for their debut single “Partying Alone.” The song is a fiery number that will get you stickin’ up your dukes. Instrumentally it shreds like a true punk song should, lyrically if gives no fucks, but the true gem in this video is the undeniable star. She without a doubt stands above the rest in this sexy high school dance competition and she has unmatched charm. Watch the video below to see this beauty in action.
Watch Egg Drop Soup’s New Video for “Partying Alone”
If you’re ever feeling down, marginalized or just want to let-the-fuck-loose, watch Egg Drop Soup’s video for “Partying Alone” (I think I watched it 10 times already). It will provide a wonderful release and empower you to do your own thang.
Have “The video was inspired by a need to do something beyond what we thought (for lack of a better term) a ‘conventional’ punk rock music video might look like,” shares frontwoman Sam Westervelt. “We could have smashed a bunch of shit and called it a day, but that almost felt too easy. We wanted to do something that felt empowering, and for women especially. As women (really as people in our society – men deal with this too for sure) we spend a lot of time in our lives “people pleasing” and making choices based on what other people might think. But how many times do we want to just tell someone to “leave me the fuck alone” – I’m not in the mood to party with you. I’m in the mood to be myself, and do my own thing.”
Egg Drop Soup’s video is directed by their very own guitarist Olivia Saperstein, produced by Fox Force Media, shot by Max Lapointe, and edited / colored by Gestures and Sounds. The video stars the remarkable Judith Lynne Hanna (who I now totally want to hang out with and features actress / model Tyler Capri Clark.
