Naomi Punk – Firehose Face (Music Video)
by Steven Spoerl
Naomi Punk specializes in a very specific type of post-punk, one that feels closer to shrapnel than a shotgun blast. It’s contained but laser-focused and unrelenting, with “Firehose Face” playing up the band’s woozy unease. It’s one of the stronger moments on the band’s recent Television Man and now it has a video to match. Shot entirely in black and white and presented with a lo-fi, low budget aesthetic, “Firehose Face” is a nervy collage if quasi-surrealistic imagery that’s next to impossible to be torn away from. Artfully hypnotic, it winds up being a perfect visual complement to Naomi Punk’s characteristically damaged madness.
