Grunge-punk trio Candy Ambulance dropped a new and intense music video for their “Spray,” the title track off the band’s EP Spray released earlier this year. The fast-paced and delightfully quirky tune explores the fixation of mania and anxiety, in a frenzied and wild ride with raw, energetic and wildly unabashed visual cut.
Vocalist Caitlin Barker shared, “Choosing “Spray” for the first video off our latest EP was a no-brainer. I was very agitated when I wrote the song. I started to see the narrative play out in my mind every time we rehearsed it; a sweaty drink glass, rubber dish gloves, smoking at the record player. It felt like a song I could see.” The band said their aim is to “make the viewer itch a little,” with a montage of scenarios throughout.
Formed in the summer of 2014, Albany-based and grunge-influenced Candy Ambulance is Caitlin Barker, Jesse Bolduc & Jon Cantiello. Lifelong friends and musical mates Bolduc & Cantiello rescued Barker from a wealthy engagement prospect and whisked her away to the land of DIY punk. Poppy melodies, dynamic vocal changes and half naked live shows have solidified this rock trio as always entertaining, unabashed fun.
With a delicious blend of gritty grunge and punk-rock hooks, Candy Ambulance continue to hone their sound into an irresistible mix, and building their name with intense, antic-filled live shows. They opened for PVRIS in May, and have performed alongside acts such as Screaming Females, Speedy Ortiz, Daddy Issues, and Dorothy.
Spray is available on Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes and all major digital retailers. Candy Ambulance continue to tour with upcoming eastern and midwest U.S. shows, and are in the process of writing and recording new material this winter.
