Look, Bleeding Knees Club’s new video for ‘Burning Crosses’ is flat-out bizarre. I don’t really know what the fuck is going on. And honestly, I love it. It shouldn’t resonate with me, but it does.
I can’t skate to save myself, but I wish I could do sick kick-flips.
I’m not a punk, but I wish I wrote anti-christ tunes like this banger.
My parents baptised me to some Jesus-loving religion, but I’d throw fuel on those burning crosses if the BKC lads told me to. Sorry mum and dad.
And who doesn’t love just nonsensically breaking shit? I haven’t done that since I was 14, but I felt a strong urge to smash stuff after watching this video.
Enough about the video, the lyrics are the highlight of ‘Burning Crosses’. The traditional religious attitude – that if you believe then you will in turn be safeguarded by whoever (or something like that, I never read the bible) – is scorched by vocalist Alex Wall. Funnily enough, he proceeds to ask “Is anybody looking for something? Is anybody looking out for me?” The song’s called ‘Burning Crosses’, mate. You’re in a bit of strife if you think someone holy is looking out for you. Nonetheless, I’m looking out for you, BKC, because ‘Burning Crosses”s fully-sick riffs and incessant drum beats make it dope.
