[Video] Bacchae - Dig
Words: Sam Geary
Washington, DC-based pink-pop four-piece Bacchae (pronounced Bock·Eye) released their self-titled EP via Get Better Records back in April.
Now its opening track, the spiky, upbeat 'Dig', gets its own music video. It is stylised as "a new dating experience" where the band pitch up in an old-style dating tape.
“'Dig'," say Bacchae, "is a song about the desperation of convincing an old lover to take you back, but it is also about how the commodification of romance makes us feel alienated from one another. We used the style of pre-online video dating services to communicate this feeling, and because it was a great excuse to make our friends wear silly clothes. We produced, filmed and edited the video ourselves, and with the help of our friends."
