Top 5 Videos of 2018 #4: Bacchae – Dig

Feminist punk band Bacchae had quite a year, with tons of support for their 2018 self-titled EP released on cassette on Get Better Records. The theme of its first single “Dig” is toxic relationships, so its accompanying band-directed music video sends up video dating, a horrific and real life way people used to meet before the heavenly era of smartphones and swiping. We love the video’s kitschy VHS effects, 80s-era graphics, on-point costumes and delightful cameos, while the song barrels through tough guitar riffs and catchy lyrics. Bacchae kick off 2019 with an opening slot for T-Rextasy at the Pie Shop on Wednesday January 16th, so open that Facebook event link and click Interested like you know you should.

Bacchae – Dig

Punk always works best with urgent problems to address, and the DC quartet Bacchae have no shortage of issues on their minds. “Dig”, the lead single from their new self-titled pay-what-you-want EP, addresses toxic relationships and romantic commodification with fervor, but its new music video puts a garish VHS-level spin on the topic. The band-directed vid is an 80s-era send up to home video dating, and the lest you think this horrific dystopia is alternate history, it’s as real as drug store photo developing and physical maps crammed into your car seat’s back pocket. Catch their charismatic live show next in Baltimore Friday night at the Windup Space with Malwalker, Spooled Up and Daddy Issues.
