Track Of The Day: Skating Polly – ‘Camelot’

Following the release of their genre-transcending fifth album The Make It All Show, Tacoma-based trio Skating Polly return with a brand new video for album track ‘Camelot’.

Blasting into the eardrums with intense, pulsating basslines and the impassioned screech of Kelli Mayo, ‘Camelot’ is a seething, grunge-fuelled anthem. Oozing a thrashing power, it perfectly tears apart the misogynistic nature of American frat-boy culture with an empowering energy.

Of the video Mayo expands:

There are so many moments throughout that always make me smile… I love the little kids, love the unfortunate crowd surfer who did not get caught – he’s okay! – and Arrow and Henri from Starcrawler had me cracking up through out the whole shoot. Those two are powerhouses, they never run out of energy. Also Allison Wolfe from Bratmobile crowd surfed for the first time ever in the video!” 

Watch the wonderfully frenzied video for ‘Camelot’ here:
