Lackhaüs Records is thrilled to present the premiere of Scarlet Wives’ video for their second single, SMOKING PISTOL, exclusively on Cult MTL. Starting tomorrow, the video will be available on YouTube.
The SMOKING PISTOL music video brings us back to the MTV era, with psychedelic colours, a moody blonde angel, a satanic punk virgin mary and an absurd dinner. The video is shot on film and co-directed by Ariana Molly whose work is as sensually vintage as it is refreshing. This high-energy video showcases Montreal’s Scarlet Wives bandmates rockers Alice Slick, The Mosquito & Zenab Jaber.
SMOKING PISTOL by Scarlet Wives, hard and sweet with a punk rock sultry fire. Banging riffs, sassy haunting vocals, nothing short of a modern rock anthem. This new single comes at you with a heavy hitting hook that’s both self-empowering and resenting the state of the world. Originally about hating the ceaseless hours working in the service industry to make ends meet, SMOKING PISTOL reflects life’s anguish, from daily frustrations to existential anxiety. Although this may sound dark, the song makes you feel like an empowered badass ready to take the world into your own hands. SMOKING PISTOL is their second release after their debut single Dream Funeral, both available on all streaming platforms.
Recorded, mixed and distributed by Lackhaüs Records, mixed and mastered by Chris Poirier at Greenhouse Studios. Vocals and guitars recorded by Montreal rocker Dave Traina of the group The Damn Truth.
