Los Angeles indie rock act Gothic Tropic once again adds their unique brand of skate-punk edge to the world of female-fronted alternative rock acts with their newest single “Stronger”. The music video can be viewed below:
The endearing vocals and smooth, irresistible bass line give this band a lot of charm that sets them apart from a genre saturated with female vocalists. The bright colors and DIY aesthetic of the music video show a group of people who are clearly close friends, drawing the viewer in with themes of companionship and lighthearted fun. Despite the DIY feel, the video clearly has high production value, with impressive cinematography and a variety of settings. The upbeat drums and groovy bass line give the track a dance-able vibe while still maintaining a punk/skate rock edge. The pristine, silky smooth vocals clash warmly with the instrumentation, and give the track an innocent charm. Despite the playful vibe, the instrumentation and lyrics of the track suggest that Gothic Tropic is still capable of incorporating some edge into their music.
