watch Earwig’s “Bring Yrself 2 Me” video starring drag queen Nina West
Long-running Columbus, OH alt-rockers Earwig released their latest album, Pause for the Jets (which included a Lydia Loveless duet), last year, and they've since made a video for "Bring Yrself 2 Me" off that album. The video stars LGBTQ activist and drag queen Nina West, and here's what singer Lizard McGee says about it:
Presented as a mini-episode from Earwig's Science Fiction rock opera, this short film was imagined as an alternative dimension, bizarro-world homage to Sam Smith’s "Stay With Me" video* in which our hero actually does come back to stay. Earwig’s song could be seen as a smoldering, obsessive response to Smith’s ode to a one night stand.
*You can re-watch the Sam Smith video and play spot the similarities with the Earwig clip.
The video premieres in this post. Watch it below, along with a stream of the album. You can pick up your copy of the album here.
