WASI, the “riot pop” group that released one of 2015’s most accomplished debut EPs, is back with a striking new video that announces its promising next era. Check out WASI’s revenge-fueled music video for “Mama’s Gonna Get You,” premiering exclusively on Fuse, above.
Originally formed as an INXS cover band, WASI (an acronym for We Are / She Is) finds co-leaders Merilou “Cosmo” Salazar and Jessie Meehan combining punk, power-pop and ferocious personality, especially on last year’s Bleed Pop EP. “Mama’s Gonna Get You” follows up with some massive hooks, and its video finds Salazar and Meehan leading a group of women against two male harassers.
“The video is about vengeance,” says Salazar. “It's a campy way of dealing with our frustrations on feeling powerless–and in a way combating it.”
Keep an eye out for more new music from WASI, who recently played L.A. Pride and have shared the stage with artists like K. Flay and Shiny Toy Guns.
