Revolver shares their thoughts on Von D’s new single: “Sound-wise, Von D’s music sits squarely in the goth/synthwave world, and ‘Fear You’ is a great showcase of her sonic talents. Over blinking synths, a snakey bassline and industiralized drums, Von D belts with a commanding coolness that would suggest she’s been making this kind of thing for a solid decade longer than she has.”
The video begins with Von D meeting her bandmates and seeing Sammi (synth 2/IAMX) and Gregg (synth 1/Cat Power, The Gossip) having relationship issues, so they all hop in Von D’s Chevy convertible and hit the road. As they head out to an abandoned lot that’s filled with red glass objects, Von D’s band pick weapons out the trunk and wreak havok. The band takes all their frustration out in a non-self destructive kind of way and have a good time together while doing it.
Kat Von D comments on what she was trying to accomplish making “Fear You”: “I wanted to create a storyline that exemplifies violence in a way that was therapeutic and not self destructive. I wrote and directed this video to tell the story of not only the pain of heartbreak, but the power of the support from the friends around you.”
She will also soon be going on tour and tickets are now on sale.
