L.A. Calling’s “Krush” video sadly disappoints. The visuals, the music, the overall vibe just didn’t do it for me. Maybe I was expecting too much from it, but I came away from it shaking my head.
Starting with the music—the singing is subpar, the music sounds dated. The Synth Pop/Rock fad has faded away long ago, but “Krush” clings on to this genre and does nothing to improve upon it. And the visuals themselves seem cheap and disjointed with the music. It shows a blonde mixing something “secret” in a bowl, then she struts around flipping her hair and seductively eating a strawberry—trying way too hard to look hot. Then we see scenes of the band in the typical fashion—singing and playing their instruments on a stage with smoke all around them. Been there, seen that a million times. Then at the end the woman reached into the bowl and we find out the band is what is in the bowl. WTF? This doesn’t really make any sense. The whole affair just gives off an air of cheese and cheap….
If you are looking for something new and interesting in the music world, skip this video. But if you are feeling down and are in the mood for a few chuckles, tune in to Krush and enjoy the cheese!
