Darkwing Amps Things Up In New Visuals For "Vicious"

Last week, Darkwing put out their new EP, Super Silver, which came out on the heels of their loosie “Ignorant Ghost.” Today, they’re premiering the visuals for “Vicious” off of the split track “Vicious/Who U R.”

Despite being based out of Brooklyn-via-New Jersey, Darkwing has a sound that’s got a lot of west coast blood in it; you can hear a blend of surf punk, scuzzy garage, and fuzzy Southern California rock elements on their latest. “Quid Facere” and “Alley Cat Blues” both dip into the band's melancholic side, while “Necropants" and “Vicious / Who U R” showcase rowdier, hooky song structures while still flirting with cynicism.

The video for “Vicious” is a dizzying mash-up of fish-lens images--from lip-syncing to quick cuts of party scenes and raucous shows. The song finds a balance between their amped up, oddball energy and east-coast neuroticism. The video only clocks in at one minute but manages to feel much longer. Check out both the video and the EP below.
