DIY pop punks Fightmilk share their new video for the single How You Move On, which is the blistering opening track on their forthcoming debut Not With That Attitude, due out via Reckless Yes on 2 November. God Is In The TV made it their Video Of The Week, calling it; “a kick-ass pop-punk song laced with a two-fingered salute of a chorus that’s catharsis encapsulates conflicted feelings of singing out your lungs after leaving your ex behind.”
- On How You Move On, Lily Rae sings about a man she was dating who was so incensed whey they split up that he got a tattoo of an ugly tree over his heart to commemmorate the relationship – turns out he had a gallery of bad tattoos of previous conquests. Lily says; “I like to try and write songs that I’d want to sing at karaoke whilst drunk which explains the chorus. It’s entirely designed for post-breakup girls-night-out karaoke.”
Lily explains further about the video: “It was directed by our friend Gemma Grange and in a nutshell: when we started chatting to Gemma I explained that the song was inspired by an ex who, in a very committed expression of dismay, decided he’d get a tattoo to commemorate our relationship after we split up. It was awful. Gemma came up with the concept of having our miserable antagonist as a life-drawing model, delighted at the opportunity to strut his junk in front of a room full of people to impress, only to discover that everyone hates him and is out for revenge. It’s kind of like Kill Bill but with Luke’s naked butt instead of the Crazy 88.”
The band play at The 1 in 12 Club in Bradford on December 8th, supported by Sarah Carey.
