Skindred has put themselves back in the spotlight with this new video. A clever visual that plays off the shared duality of man and beast.
People have been arguing cats and dogs seemingly since the animals first became domesticated. Although I personally prefer dogs, I can’t see this video portrayed by any other creature but a cat. This is a memorable offering that has all the elements of a cult-classic.
I got into Skindred briefly back in 2004 when the album Babylon (reissue) came out. I really appreciated the tracks “Pressure” and “Nobody” and found their nu-metal meets reggae attack freshly aggressive. Unfortunately, I lost track of the band shortly thereafter. Little did I know Skindred has gone on to have a successful career, releasing five full length albums with a sixth, Big Tings, released last month via Napalm Records.
The music video for “That’s My Jam” follows the exploits of a cat during his ‘night out on the town’. The animal is depicted as a leather jacket wearing ‘metalhead’ complete with spikes and a pair of sunglasses. What follows is a series of hilarious scenes involving the cat man. My favorite part is when the cat ends up in an alley buying catnip from a drug dealer, the dog negotiating for the bone makes this scene all the more memorable.
