Video: Sleater-Kinney – “Can I Go On”
Directed by Ashley Connor. From The Center Won’t Hold, out now on Mom and Pop.
It’s kinda fun to hear S-K go full New Wave, but I think it works. And the sentiment is certainly irrefutable.
Everyone I know is tired
And everyone I know is wired
To machines, it’s obscene
I’ll just scream ’til it don’t hurt no more
I dig the lead guitar tone; sounds like the producer is loaning them her effects pedals, ha ha. Love the “oo ooo-wooo” background vocals too, embracing and twisting the classic girl group vibe.
