Sleater-Kinney Celebrate Female Strength in "Can I Go On" Video
The track comes from their new album 'The Center Won't Hold'
Published Sep 05, 2019Sleater-Kinney have shared a video for their recent The Center Won't Hold track "Can I Go On."
The clip was written by the band's Carrie Brownstein, directed by Ashley Connor, and stars Lauri Guzda and Mami Kimura.
"We wanted the video to speak to an existence that has been fractured and frayed by age or by loss, by divisive politics, by trauma or depression," the band explained in a statement. "We aimed to showcase the female body as a place of resistance, to explore how much it can withstand trespass, sorrow and chaos. The body, then, becomes a site of transformation, repurposing invisible wounds and wear into kinetic energy and power.
"The women in the video display modes of strength and joy in ways we do not traditionally see."
