Today, New York based punk queens T-Rextasy reveal the music video for their new single Girl, Friend, out 6/20 on Danger Collective. This is the band’s first release since their critically-acclaimed debut, “Jurassic Punk” (2016) that earned praise from Rob Sheffield at Rolling Stone and NPR Music. T-Rextasy performed over 100 gigs in 2017 and will bring their spectacular and theatrical show to 30 cities in North America this summer. The band will donate part of their merchandise earnings to various organizations supporting LGBTQ+ rights and reproductive justice.
The quirky and evocative film for Girl, Friend, powered by unbridled riffs and whimsical lyrics, finds T-Rextasy members Annie, Ebun, Lyris and Vera in their colorful “Pool of Luv”, hoping to snag the hearts of passersby.
The video for Girl, Friend was co-directed by Annie Fidoten and Emily Cohn and shot in Inspiration Point in Washington Heights.
During their sets, the group acknowledges the indigenous communities originating from each city and land they are performing upon. Annie adds: “Our songs are not all political. But our actions are; without action, it means very little.”
The band intentionally curate inclusive bills for every performance. Lyris explains their process:”We are trying to build a network through touring by connecting with bands and aiming to do our part in upholding resources that support bands that are not cis white men.”
