Featuring members of Riverboat Gamblers and Rise Against, Drakulas sank their teeth into some killer rock tunes. Their new video for "VHS" is an homage to old punk band outfit Suburban Lawns. You can watch both clips, with Drakulas above, and Suburban Lawn's below. The uncanny resemblance is out of respect for the art form pioneered by the earlier outfit. And they're unashamed about it.
"That Suburban Lawns song 'Janitor' is really great and there is something truly magical about that video," Mike Wiebe says. "As someone who has logged thousands of hours watching and working on music videos I was struck by it in a way that I can't explain.
"There are so many odd subtleties that whether chosen or accidental make it a singular piece of art that I can never tire of. In trying to capture it's feeling we realized that we should just give it a proper homage (or rip it off depending how you look at it) and try to recreate it. Talent borrows. Genius steals. Thanks Suburban Lawns!"
