NEEDS Share New Track and Video called ‘Everybody Makes Me Steaks’

NeedsVancouver’s NEEDS are back with their latest track and video, titled ‘Everybody Makes Me Steaks’ (watch below).

The band got in touch with Punk Online and had the following to say:-

“​‘Steaks’ started off as a poem. We wanted to make a different sounding song in the vein of TV Freaks. There’s a reference to Agate Beach which is in northern California where we stopped on the way down the first time. The title is a reference to my first ever solo exhibition where I presented London Drugs contact sheets blown up and encased in lucite. On the opposite wall I wrote ‘Everybody Makes me Steaks.’ It was meant to defy the dominant narrative of Vancouver school photography that looks for the ‘perfect photograph.’ By showing the contact prints you could see all of my mistakes as well as the process.

“The song is rich in visual narrative and I wanted to complement that with an homage to 90s shoegaze videos, but, as with everything we do, we wanted to keep it light, even though it’s basically a song about how much my body hurts all the time.


“We recorded at Rain City Studios with Jesse Gander (Baptists, Japandroids, ANCIIENTS).


​“Thanks for watching.”
