The Vindys Share ‘Bugs’ Music Video

Ohio-based band The Vindys will release a special vinyl edition of their album Bugs this Record Store Day on Black Friday, November 25th and to celebrate this release they have shared the official music video for the album's title track Bugs. 
The song, with mesmerizing and hypnotic beat, was mixed by Ryan West (Rihanna, Eminem, Jay-Z), and beautifully showcases Jackie Popovec's powerful, confident vocal delivery which soar over an edgy alt-rock production packed with lush, soaring guitar riffs, killer bass and punchy percussion. 

Speaking about the song, Jackie Popovec said,
The title track Bugs has both literal and symbolic meanings for me personally. Songwriting for me is therapeutic in the sense that I tend to memorialize the things that “Bug” me through song, and I let it go once it’s written. In a literal sense, there was the one time that I had discovered thousands of yellow jackets living in my ceiling right above my bed. If I hadn’t called The Bee Man (a Youngstown beekeeper) to come the next day, the weight of the hives they made in the ceiling would have fallen and it could've been very dangerous. This event inspired the song and later the title of the album.

The video, which was directed by Pete Campbell and filmed at a private home in Canfield, OH, was inspired by Jackie Popovec's real-life experience of finding 10,000 yellow jackets behind the walls in the ceiling of her bedroom. Says Popovec,
we took this literal story and made a sort of inception-like dream within a dream music video where I fall asleep and wake up to insects (The Vindys band members) disturbing me. The video follows a spiraling wonderland into several scenes before waking up and realizing it was all a dream.
