Stream Sheer Mag's New III 7" And Check Their Nostalgic "Nobody's Baby" Video

Stream Sheer Mag's New III 7

Sheer Mag just shared a new video for their song "Nobody's Baby" directed by L.A.-based film collective NancyShirley, the creative minds behind the band's earlier "Fan The Flames" video. "For this video we executed the high production values and veneers of 1980's pop music videos, while embracing and manipulating their antithesis, the confinements and blunders of analog recording." NancyShirley told AdHoc via email. "The VHS aesthetic contributes to the large scale illusion of the 3D printed set. We strived to create a galactic temple stage that would suite the nostalgia of Sheer Mag's resurfaced sound." The track blazes by, propelled by fuzzy, uptempo guitar riffs while Christina Halladay's brassy voice expounds on themes of independence juxtaposed with the entitlement of men. "Nobody's Baby" brings to mind the strong-willed pop anthems of Donna Summer or Gloria Gaynor filtered through the lens of a Philadelphia punk band. Its video flaunts this nostalgia, disco-ball and all. 

The new video accompanies the release of Sheer Mag's third EP, III, now available to stream below. The new four-track release features "Nobody's Baby" as well as the previously released cut "Can't Stop Fighting".

AdHoc brings Sheer Mag to Market Hotel on May 6th. More tour dates after the jump.
