The Bombpops Premiere “Double Arrows Down” Music Video

The Bombpops have premiered a new video for their new song “Double Arrows Down” via AltPress. This track is from the band’s new album “Death In Venice Beach,” which will be released on March 13. Poli Van Dam commented:

“‘Double Arrows Down’” is a song I had wanted to write for a while, but it’s always been so difficult to really face it and hit the nail on the head. Diabetes is a frustrating, relentless disease. I hope fellow diabetics or anybody going through a rough circumstance can relate. We all want to give up sometimes, and I think that’s OK to admit.”

The Bombpops Premiere “Notre Dame” Music Video

The Bombpops have premiered a new video for their new song “Notre Dame.” This track is from the band’s new album “Death In Venice Beach,” which will be released on March 13.

Jen Razavi said the following about the song:

“I’ve always loved the idea of souls being here together in past lives and the notion that space and time have never really mattered. I saw Notre Dame in flames on the news and immediately sat down to write a song. It was the exact imagery I needed to convey a theme I had been exploring about knowing someone so deeply before ever meeting them. A centuries-old cathedral in flames became a perfect representation.”

Poli van Dam also added the following about the record:

“I want people to feel this dark, uneasy feeling. I went to rehab right when we were finalizing the mixes and stuff, and so listening back to the songs when I was in rehab, I’m like, ‘Oh shit, I was going through some stuff without even realizing how dark everything was and how shitty of a place I was in.”
