Static People - "Monkey Scratches" Official Music Video

Artist city, country: San Francisco, California, USA

Artist Biography: Static People posits a parallel universe where punk and pop are conjoined twins then splits them with a buzzsaw guitar. The result is an atomic burst of refined madness that is as precise as it is lysergic, feral on the edges and underscored by the warm hum of a radioactive heart.

Best Punk/Post Punk Artist 2013(Toxic Overload single), Artist in Music Awards, Los Angeles

"Snarling on the quirky, wiry, Metric/Epoxies-like "Monkey Scratches," sweet on the wheezy, danceable "Tonight," and seductive on the hurtling, propulsive "Just Go." --The Big Takeover, NY

"For a performer who defies facile definition, Smith does boast a single defining feature -- her voice, which she wields with virtuosic command...with a natural warmth that adds a sultry dimension to the band's challenging, punk-infused arrangements." --Bullpit Magazine, LA

"The Late Projectionist brings us deeper into the mind of singer Dmitra Smith...painting vivid pictures of the goings-on of a haunted mind...top-notch recording and an album full of hooky songs..." --Vandala Concepts, Canada

About The Video: Monkey Scratches is a satire commentary on the endless pursuit of wealth and power, the race to be the monkey at the top of the pile. We make references to DEVO, Nietzsche, and 2001: A Space Odyssey. We shot this guerilla style in San Francisco's financial district, in front of some of the banking institutions which perpetuate this insane cycle of greed. We also had a crew of teenage boys, which made for amazing action as the monkeys fight to claim the throne seen in the slow motion sequence. This video was 100% DIY. All of the costumes and props were either created, thrifted or re-purposed. It was directed by our guitar player Pascal Faivre and shot by Ben Staub and Sarah Wastell.

Song Lyrics: he wants the money, she wants to party
is it a hole or a wall? last call
nobody's on the throne just the old dirty crows
it always goes the same way

a mortal machine, disintegrating view
crown the ideal, let the cities feed
oh such brittle stars, they're heading straight for Mars
spark up the tinder, make the most before it's gone
a voice inside your head no

we just don't wanna see, I don't know why
makes me wanna scream into the sky
monkey scratches, you throw it all away

grand slam pay dirt, don't even reach those itches
a riot inside, the fire this time
oh such brittle stars, they're heading straight for Mars
spark up the tinder, make the most before it's gone
a voice inside your head no

and the people cried
they cried into the sky
but there was no one there
there was no god there
no one to save their wretched skins
we threw it all away

monkey scratches
don't even reach my itches

we don't wanna see
the monkey don't know why
makes me wanna scream into the sky
monkey scratches
you throw it all away
