And Crystalyne thinks that “Punks Don’t Dance”
The catchy and colourful new video for their song “Punks Don’t Dance” from their new EP The Remedy, features the band alternating between performing and playing in confetti, all the while dancing and living it up.
The lyrics talk of teenage thematics of love at the punk show, something any young fans of live music can attest to (don’t lie, we’ve all been there.)
This song and video really highlight Crystalyne’s progress as a band. From a young little pop rock outfit many years back in the day to where they’ve come now, has been an awesome journey for them. They’re now producing extraordinarily well composed music and now solid cinematics to go with them.
The foursome from Toronto has been touring across Canada since the release of The Remedy in late 2013, a follow up to their first EP Navigate. Both albums have received critical acclaim from music media big and small, and for good reason.
This latest video brings you into their world a little bit, showing how much fun they;re having along the journey that has brought them here. Dattoli herself is settling well into her role as vocal vixen upfront, a great development from her shyer earlier days with the band, she’s now standing tall and proud and making sure she’s heard.
The sonic chemistry between her and guitarist Josh Given shines through on their live set, and can be pinpointed has part of the reason their music writing has become so tight, but it also shines through brightly watching this video.
Plus Dattoli is dressed up in a tutu and dancing around like a ballerina, which is probably just as hilarious as the dance cameos of fans featured busting a move with them. There’s nothing about this video that isn’t fun, so go ahead and dance, prove them wrong – punks.
