24-year-old, DIY slouch rock musician Skinner has returned with the video for “Dog Daze“, his second single on Faction Records. Inspired by the movie Dog Day Afternoon, the theatrical video is a perfect homage to the original material. Watch it now below.
About the song Skinner said, “The song was inspired by the movie ‘Dog Day Afternoon’. The main character of Sonny was someone that really resonated with me. Nearly everyone my age is stuck between a rock and a hard place where everyday the news just gets worse and worse. The police want to do you over, the landlords want to rip you off and the government wants to crucify you. It’s at a point where everyone’s just like “I’m tired man” and when you’re tired you’re in no mood to put up with bullshit so you tell it like it is. That’s what I wanted to do with this song, tell it like it is.”
“Dog Daze” and “The Slump” follow the Gunge EP on 12” vinyl, a collection of five singles released from 2019 to 2021, available now on Bandcamp from skinner97.bandcamp.com.
