With a cinematic farfisa-driven groove, Sons of Anarchy attitude, and raucous fuzzy indie rock vocals, rock group The Grahams, have released their brand new video for “Bite My Tongue,” the second single off their upcoming record KIDS LIKE US (set for release in early 2020 via 3 Sirens Music Group/RED MUSIC/The Orchard). The video opens with Alyssa and Doug Graham getting run out of town by their hellacious doppelgangers of a comically badass nature. These rebel Grahams storm the streets of the city, throwing pizza at random citizens, stealing guitars from children, pushing over yoga-practicing hipsters while delivering their spine-tingling brand of renegade rock. “Bite My Tongue” pushed Alyssa out of her comfort zone, channeling her inner Bowie while using an overdriven mic and additional contact mics taped to her throat to attain that gnarly, ruthless tone.
The song was inspired not by anarchy but instead by, “a fringe of towns between the desert and LA that are like unstable elements, caught between two different states of being,” explains Doug. “Their residents seem to have that same restless instability.” “It’s not a great place to break down on a motorcycle, but we did,” adds Alyssa. “‘Bite My Tongue’ was inspired by our strange and disturbing encounter in the Mojave. One could call it our ‘Rock and Roll Revenge’ song.”
