Hey what’s up. Welcome to the first Video Clip of the Week for Fall, 2015, courtesy of the Canadian band, Dilly Dally! Aurally, Dilly Dally’s “Purple Rage” sounds like Maria McKee possessed by the spirit of Kathleen Hanna fronting The Pixies. What that means is that your ears are in for a blast of grunge-melodicism that is, in a word, irresistible. In the video, Dilly Dally lead vocalist, Katie Monks plays the challenging role of the embodiment of Rage, a popular and underrated emotion which takes the form of a Creature from the Purple Lagoon, or something. Purple Rage then wanders from the marshlands into the streets of downtown Toronto for a story line that is both surreal and totally familiar simultaneously. It is a lot of fun to watch, and the song is just fantastic!
“Purple Rage” is the second single from the band’s hotly anticipated debut album, Sore, due out October 9th, 2015 on Partisan Records. Enjoy!
