Call us old fashion but generally when it comes to “heavy music,” metalcore and hip-hop don’t usually pair very well together. That is, until today at least.
Out of Sacramento, up-start outfit ARTISVNS are premiering their infectious new Punk Goes Pop-like single “Hips & Bones.” Sounding like a Logic-meets-Hot Topic concoction, ARTISVNS have somehow found a way to create an original track sounding like it could be a Top 40 cover – which is a very good and very impressive thing, by the way.
When asked about the new track and accompanying music video featuring various promiscuous movie clips, drummer Kalun Wertz weighed in saying:
“The theme of the music video was to capture an emotion rather than to tell a story. The whole video was shot on VHS film. The visuals playing behind the band and each individual member were put together by [vocalist Jeffrey Madeira] and his sister showcasing clips of famous women from movies, shows, music videos etc. The visuals were created to portray that aesthetic feel that the whole video is built on.”
