PWR BTTM debut “I Wanna Boi” video

PWR BTTM debut "I Wanna Boi" video, embark on North American/UK headline tours with Bellows, Lisa Prank, The Spook School

Having recently shared the news of the UK re-release of their debut album Ugly Cherries, queer punk duo PWR BTTM have released their music video for “I Wanna Boi.”

Filmed in upstate New York, director Anneliese Cooper says of the video: “If I had to elevator-pitch my concept for this video, it would go something like ‘Miss Havisham and Dr. Frank-N-Furter act out that visual gag from Arrested Development where there’s nothing in the cabinets.’ If I had to explain it any more coherently than that, I’d say this video is about expectations – about being lonely in bed as a teenager and making little stageplays behind your eyelids of what love is going to be like, then being sentenced to live in that state of half-imagined wanting. That’s what I’ve always identified with in ‘I Wanna Boi’: an attempt to get out in front of your big, directionless longing with wit and excellent lipstick.

PWR BTTM are currently recording their sophomore album which will be released by Polyvinyl Records in 2017. Their latest pair of new singles, “Projection” and “New Hampshire” are available digitally via Father/Daughter Records (US) and as bonus tracks on the UK re-release of Ugly Cherries on October 7th via Big Scary Monsters.

PWR BTTM’s North American tour kicks off next month with Vundabar, Bellows and Lisa Prankas support. They will make their maiden trip overseas to perform eight dates in the UK and Europe seeing support from The Spook School.
