TVD Video Premiere:
The Gods Themselves,
“I Am the President”

Seattle-based The Gods Themselves’ sound has soul, edge, and groove. The trio is cosmically linked and prepared to usher in a rapturous new age where, as lead singer Astra says, they “will blow your ear’s mind.”

The video for their debut single “I Am The President” seems to surmise that being in such a position would allow one to indulge in any sort of nonsense one wishes. While this sentiment may not be entirely true, it makes for a good ol’ post punk rock anthem that is accentuated by a fiery, Egyptian guitar arpeggio and lots and lots of wha-wha pedal. The song excels in its ability to twist the famous phrases of our forefathers into breezy slogans such as “ask not what you can do for me… ask for magic wishes baby, I’ll give you three.”

Having only been around since early 2014, the band has a surprisingly solid sound that can be attributed to Astra’s time in the group Atomic Bride. This new endeavor strips the previous band’s sound down to a brute trifecta of drums and two guitars and allows Astra’s compelling stage presence to shine.
