It should go without saying that 2020 has been the craziest year to occur in America. Indie Rock band Dear Banshee showcases a recap of the annual events and even predict the imprisonment of Donald Trump in their animated clip for “Plagued.” Video Director Andy Markantonatos seeks to highlight episodes like the pandemic, the BLM protests, and the elections with awesome claymation techniques. While its realistic lyrics don’t reflect this context, they are magnificent in their own way.
With the right drum pattern, electronic elements, and nice guitar riffs, it’s impossible not to enjoy Dear Banshee’s unique art. Believe it or not, each member of the San Francisco-based band recorded their own part from their home studios during the quarantine period. Despite difficulties, the end result speaks so well of their professionalism. So far, the feedback from their fans is positive, and they’re already eager to hear similar tunes. I’m not kidding, it’s definitely worth checking out the catchy vocals and the chorus above all else.
