Oakland, California’s SWMRS decide to bring their punk rock flair to a bingo hall in the video for ‘Lose Lose Lose’, the new track taken from recently released LP, ‘Berkeley’s On Fire’.
Speaking about the song, co-frontman Cole Becker had this to say.
“I always wanted to know what it would feel like to crowd surf if the average age of the crowd was 71 instead of 17. Ambar and I talked a lot about this video as a way of inverting the formula of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’. Being a young person in 2019 feels a lot more like being in an inhospitable bingo club than being in the hyper idealized vision of a punk show. You have all this energy and vision and passion to contribute to the world, and you’re constantly met with this sludgy rejection as if you’re intruding on someone else’s party.”

The band’s new studio album, ‘Berkeley’s On Fire’, is out now on Fueled By Ramen.
