Bad Moves made a video for “Wishing,” touring with The Beths

Bad Moves

Last fall, DC punks Bad Moves released their debut LP Tell No One on Don Giovanni, and they’ve now made a video for its song “Wishing.” The video was made by co-lead-singer David Combs (also of Spoonboy, The Max Levine Ensemble, and SOMNIA), who tells us:

The song “Wishing” is about the expectations that adults project onto children, and the music video is made up of some old footage I took a few years ago of my then 2 year old housemate dressed as the Grim Reaper. She’s 5 now and when I asked her if I could use the footage, she said “yeah, I don’t need it anymore.”

(Cute!) David’s description should give you a good idea of what to expect from this hazy video, which pairs well with the song, which is one of the calmer songs on the album. Watch it and stream the whole LP below.

Bad Moves also have upcoming tour dates, including a run opening part of The Beths and Bad Bad Hats‘ tour. That includes The Beths and Bad Bad Hats’ sold-out Brooklyn show (3/1 at Music Hall of Williamsburg), and Bad Moves are also playing SXSW. All dates are listed below.
