Los Angeles-based rock band No Girlfriends is no stranger to sex, love, and rock ‘n roll. With the release of their new music video for their upcoming EP, it’s never been more apparent. Directed by Jaz Moore, the gender-bending video playfully pokes fun at the ups-and-downs of relationships(We’ve all had those, right?).
“I met with lead singer Janelle and we went over Sheets lyric by lyric to discover what the heart of it was. I wanted to know where she was emotionally when she wrote it,” Jaz Moore says. “I listened to it non-stop for three days; in the car, in bed, in the gymʼs sauna. Thank god it’s such a great song!”
Lead singer Janelle Obert says Sheets is about “vulnerability at its ﬁnest and how we all want to be strong and secure in a relationship…or do we?”
The two came up with the concept of four couples all struggling with their respective partners. It wasn’t until No Girlfriends guitarist/bassist Robin Feldman suggested the band play all the roles, that the idea was cemented.
“It works so well because we have this serious theme of insecurity so having the girls perform every role and have fun with that, well it added the playfulness and absurdity the story was lacking” says Jaz. “To top it all off, we somehow got actress Anne Ramsay to play the (pardon the pun) “straight man” and the amazing make-up artist Brooke Barker to transform the band. This video was such a team effort and I can’t gush enough about the talent involved!”
