DREAMERS have released a new scene-studded video for “Screws” that demonstrates the love among artists in the Los Angeles area.
Some of the cameos in the clip include Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach), the Wrecks, the Griswolds, the Mowgli’s, Steve Aiello (Thirty Seconds To Mars) and many more. The band wanted to show the community of artists and songwriters living in L.A., and how it feels similar to the Seattle grunge scene of the ’90s.
“There are bands, songwriters, producers and people in every branch of the industry, and everyone is writing together, recording together and touring together,” DREAMERS say about L.A. “Ever since we moved here it was apparent that everybody just wants everybody to succeed and make great music.”
The video is meant to show the laid-back attitude of the scene, and how everyone is really just trying to have a good time and make music.
“We made it over the course of four nights driving around and just hanging out with our friends, tour-families and co-conspirators of alternative music,” the band says about the video.
The song, which comes from the band’s EP Launch, has a much darker meaning than the video portrays.
“‘Screws’ is a tortured love song about losing your mind,” lead vocalist Nick Wold says. “We really wanted to make a passionate song in the style of early ’90s industrial music, which often dealt with the darker sides of romance, while bringing it into the world of 2018 sonically.”
The inspiration for the track came from Wold’s last relationship, where he felt “most lonely” when he was with his partner.
“It came out of the crumbling of logic and reason that love can bring, twisted dreams and memories, ghosts and insurmountable walls that can be created in a mind left to its own devices,” Wold says.
