Sloppy Jane Bark Like a God in new video, touring (shows w/ Cherry Glazerr, more)
Sloppy Jane have made a video for "Bark Like a God" which is off their album Willow. Says singer Haley Dahl:
Willow tells the story of a great adventure. Willow is a girl, who existed inside of a strip club in Inglewood, who ran away to the desert to hustle pool with a lion, and who burned herself alive for my freedom. She was buried at sea alongside her best friend. This piece is dedicated to their sacrifice and to their memory. This video is part of a four part video series (directed by Mikaela Lungulov-Klotz), the first being for "Kitchen Store", in which the two main characters are introduced, and the second for "Bark Like A God," in which they are contextualized and have their first interaction. "Bark Like A God" was written as an impression of a song that Willow would have danced to."
You can watch the video, which might be slightly NSFW (depending on where you work), and the "Kitchen Store" video, below. And read more about the series in an interview with Haley at Atwood Magazine.
You can catch Sloppy Jane live tonight (7/24) at Alphaville in Brooklyn as part of a solid lineup headlined by skronky post-punk no-wavers Pill, plus Material Girls and Crammm (tickets). They'll also be on tour in August, starting with another Brooklyn show, Rough Trade on August 3 opening for Cherry Glazerr (tickets), and they'll play again with CG the next night in Portsmouth, NH. They'll then hit the Midwest with shows in Minneapolis, Chicago, Pittsburgh and more. Their live show is great. All dates are listed below.
