The nervy compositions on Woozy’s debut album Blistered led us to name the New Orleans trio one of the best new bands of last year. Now, they’re going on tour and are back with a new video for “Venom” to promote it. This one sees them taking inspiration from their surroundings, with a creepy look into a mental breakdown fueled by “classic voodoo and swamp witch themes,” so explains guitarist/vocalist John St. Cyr. Here’s how he frames the video:
There are two sides to every story. With the video for “Venom” we wanted to explore a perspective that is untold within the song’s lyrics. The song itself condemns the kind of person who ‘poisons’ their community with negativity, lies and gossip. The video attempts to empathize with this person, exploring their emotional turmoil and internal conflict. PEARS frontman Zach Quinn is transformed from an everyday scenester into a basement-dwelling hobgoblin; the real-world representation of our album Blistered’s gremlin cover. He undergoes a visceral struggle before succumbing to his own literal venom and vitriol, his toxic hidden self made material in the form of maple flavored black goop.
