New York art-pop trio The Wants (featuring Bodega members Madison Velding-VanDam and Heather Elle) have aired the video for their new single "Fear My Society".
About the song, vocalist and guitarist Madison Velding-VanDam comments: "’Fear My Society’ is a song that has gone through multiple genre shifts and moods until it finally clicked this past year. In one sense, the lyrics couldn’t be more straightforward — a reflection of the always-shifting (though recently seismically so) political, economic, and technological atmosphere of the United States.”
"But I didn’t write the song in reaction to this. I was reflecting on the pressures I put on myself to achieve — “will you love me if I’m a failure?” is an honest concern of mine, a universal and primal concern that spans generations and even species. I’m interested in always pushing a step further towards what scares me.”
The video was directed by Madison Carroll and Madison Velding-VanDam. Watch it below.
