VIDEO PREMIERE: LUNCH LADY “DEEPER”

June 12th, 2018 | News

L.A. band Lunch Lady‘s Demos came out on cassette in March, and now lead track “Deeper” comes to life in this uncomfortably sharp video, in which a song about a certain feeling of loss turns into a bunch of not-really-doctors performing a not-really-medical procedure not really carefully, although they do pry out (spoilers?) some surely painful bugs and doll heads. Explains the band:

“Lunch Lady chose the song ‘Deeper’ for their first music video, given the track’s eerie mood and suggestive lyrics. [Vocalist Rachel] Birke initially wrote the lyrics for the song as a reflection on the inescapable feeling of something being taken away from you after experiencing bad sex. The band worked with director Matthew James-Wilson to write and shoot the video, and collectively came up with the idea of showing Birke getting a check-up at a fringe doctor’s office which then leads to a grotesque surgery on Birke performed by the rest of the band [including Juan Velasquez, Victor Herrera and Robert Wolfe] who play the surgeons. The video was shot in black & white and features practical special effects, to mirror the band’s dark but campy aesthetic and the nuanced context of the track.’
