ROM – JERRY PRINCESS TASTE VIDEO

By Tony Porreco

ROM (formerly The Dead Women) have caught the bug for making videos. The band put out their new record soda christ not much more than a month ago, and they’re already releasing a second music video.

While their last video for “Nuisance” followed a boxer pushing the boundaries of gender, coordinated movement is the big idea explored here in the new video for the song “Jerry Princess Taste”, which also happens to feature backup vocals from Wye Oak‘s Jenn Wasner.

The juxtaposition of highly stylized dance maneuvers over a punk rock number makes for a fun watch; it’s like watching a ballroom dance class being DJed by Joey Ramone. Also, this is a video oozing with snazzy, high quality production values, so take a break from the low-res cat vids you’re sneaking in at work and enjoy the craft of a well-made video.
