With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound. He pulls the spitting high-tension wires down.
Ottawa based neo-rock nerds Double Experience released their third album ‘Unsaved Progress’ back in April of last year, and we’re excited to exclusively premiere the brand new video for the track “Godzilla.” A cover of the same-named Blue Oyster Cult song, “Godzilla” is a love letter to the King of the Monsters, and the fun video sees the Big G attacking a city like only he can.
Okay, so it’s actually a dog in a Godzilla costume. And the city is made of cardboard.
Vocalist Ian Nichols explained to us why he wanted to cover the track:
What Blue Oyster Cult accomplished with “Godzilla” is exactly what Double Experience aspire to do as well: combine rock music and nerdy, sci-fi topics together into timeless songs. We believed that including this song on our album ‘Unsaved Progress’ was the best way to acknowledge the roots of our band.
Guitarist Brock Tinsley added:
We shot the “Godzilla” video all by ourselves. It took about 3 months from set design to editing, and most of that was getting the main character, Django, our touring bulldog, to fit in his costume.
You can check out the “Godzilla” video below and if you dig it, be sure to stream ‘Unsaved Progress’ in its entirety. The nine-track album covers everything from major-league gaming to time travel, and the band proudly advertises that it’s “devoid of the brooding seriousness and lovelorn tantrums of their peers.” Fun is the name of the game, and we can get behind that.
