Burning Pools Drops New Music Video for “Bang Bang”
- Los Angeles-based rock band Burning Pools dropped a new music video for “Bang Bang” on October 4th.
The song was released as the first single from their upcoming debut EP on September 4th.
“I hope that people will feel empowered and seen. There's are a lot of shitty things going on in the world. The priorities of “the world” are backwards,” former Smashing Pumpkins bassist Ginger Pooley told American Songwriter. “We did a demo of 'Bang Bang' before even thinking of starting the band. I think we sat down to work on it when our daughter was taking a nap. It feels like this song has just been with us for a long time. When we got Max in the mix, the song really came to life. He was pretty adamant that it needed a bridge, which I was fine to go without. I had lived with it for so long, I couldn't even imagine what the bridge could be. But I'm so glad Max pushed for something more because now it's one of the coolest parts of the song. After writing the bridge, the song really felt complete and we got to work recording it.”
- The band was formed by Ginger Pooley, her husband Kristopher Pooley and guitarist Max Bernstein.
They have shared a long list of studio and worked with Tom Morello, Siouxsie Sioux, Gwen Stefani, Morrissey, Liz Phair, Tegan and Sara.
“Ginger and I have been working on different music off and on since we met and got married in 2008, usually on Ginger's solo projects. These songs felt a little different though and we wanted to play with a like-minded friend so we joined forces with Max,” Kristopher Pooley said.
The debut EP is expected to be released later this year. Ginger Pooley said, “It's nothing new for music to be a voice of criticism of our culture. That is the purpose of a lot of art. This is just my way of expressing my frustration with the priorities of modern society. Valuing money over everything, undervaluing women and people of color. Hopefully our songs make people who are of the same accord feel heard and supported. There is so much injustice in the world, we hope to be a part of the solution in some small way.”
