Royal Bangs play it cool in their video for “Octagon,” letting loose in a studio space and jamming out in front of a kaleidoscopic backdrop of vibrant color. The Knoxville, Tennessee, band shifts across different sets as they play the warm, jangly track, rocking out in a fake cabin, soloing in smokey rooms and getting punched in the face by two fists for a milk and cereal explosion.
“This video was a lot of fun to make. We shot the whole thing in one day in Knoxville with a bunch of friends helping out,” frontman Ryan Schaefer tells Rolling Stone. Guitarist Sam Stratton even got to show off his hidden talents, Indiana Jones-style. “We’re glad to have finally found an outlet to show off Sam’s whip skills,” says Schaefer.
