Our past cover stars Napalmpom are premiering quite an interesting new video today, made by IMVERYAPE. Give the video a play below, and read on for context from the band and IMVERYAPE.
Napalmpom: “The mid-to-late ’90s era of Much Music instilled confidence in us at a young(-er) age that being a Canadian band could be genuinely important and valued. We obsessively taped episodes of Much East and The Wedge hoping to see videos by Thrush Hermit, Change Of Heart and Slow and wore out our copies of Sloan’s own Intimate and Interactive. 90 minutes dedicated to the music and personalities of a Canadian band? Canada’s Kiss, but with far better songs. Its Beatles, but without the baggage. We dreamt of having our very own ‘leave the Much studios to sing a tune in Speaker’s Corner,’ as Chris Murphy did on ‘Deeper Than Beauty.’
Since then, well, it’s become apparent that we’d never be given that same platform afforded equally to great and awful music of the time. So, with the knowledge that no one will ever care about our band as much as we do, we took it on ourselves to pair up with IMVERYAPE to make our very own.”
