OSEES take on police brutality in video for “Perm Act” from upcoming album
OSEES release a new album, A Foul Form, later this summer, and they've just shared new single "Perm Act," a wild, surfy punk burner that takes some weird left turns over the course of four minutes. The surreal animated video takes aim at police brutality, as frontman John Dwyer explains:
Who likes a cop?
After years of having unpleasant to violent encounters with police, I had the thought that wouldn’t it be fun if they loved each other so much they ate each other…a sort of dark comedy contemporary and executive branch based “a modest proposal.”
The violence would hit such a high pitch that they just frenzied like sharks with chum.
I saw with my own eyes two of the biggest knuckleheads i grew up with go on to have careers in law enforcement emulating the beatings they regularly took when they would mouth off to a cop.
These guys were most definitely not fit for gun ownership, let alone policing others.
Good luck out there.
Watch the video below.
A Foul Form is out August 12 via Castle Face and OSEES will be on tour in September including three shows at Brooklyn's Warsaw on September 22, 23 & 24 which are with Bronze. All dates are listed below.
