The Venomous Pinks give their pop punk take on the cult classic horror movie, ‘Carrie’ in the music video for their Latest Single “I Really Don’t Care.” The music video was directed by Alexander Thomas with a storyline reenacting frame by frame the infamous 1970’s horror flick “Carrie.” The visuals are a perfect bloody pairing to The Pinks’ signature razor-sharp licks, intense beats, and punk attitude.
The video provides a pop-punk palate cleanser with bassist Gaby Kaos on lead vocals. The track is a reimagining of a song from Kaos’ youth that she wrote after a mentally abusive relationship.
She says, “My boyfriend at the time was really controlling and did not believe in my dreams of becoming a musician because he let his aspirations fall by the wayside. I found myself at a crossroads, and decided to leave him to stay true to my music.”
Years later, she revisited the song, and it took on a different meaning.
“Like other bands, we’ve been dealt with negative backlash over the years, and this track really drives home that we ultimately ‘really don’t care’ about the negativity. Nothing will stop us from accomplishing our goals.”
