L.A. trio Sabrina Is Not In This Chat are like one of those SST Records bands that truly wanted to figure out what came after punk, and who decided that doing it themselves meant doing it their own way, too. “Sink Into Me” (and other SInITC songs) are made from momentum and telepathy, with snap tone and tempo changes and a dedication to doing at least two unexpected things at every given opportunity. Heavy bass, heavy drums, urgent vocals and guitar connected more to lightning strikes than power chords—no wonder their house shows seem so energetic. In fact, this was less a music video than a documentary effect, says the band: “A bunch of our buddies documented the show and no one—including us—knew it was going to be a music video when it was shot, so the intimacy and energy of our live house shows is really well captured.” SInITC’s latest album Not Recommended For Sensitive Skin came out last month on L.A.’s vital Penniback label—get it here!
