Sleater-Kinney Can I Go On”

Sleater-Kinney have shared their new video for “Can I Go On,” off their current release, The Center Won’t Hold. The St. Vincent-produced full-length is now available via Mom + Pop Music. Sleater-Kinney, start their North American tour starting October 9 in Spokane, WA

The concept for the “Can I Go On” video was written by Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein; it was directed and filmed by Ashley Connor, a long-time friend of the band, and stars Lauri Guzda and Mami Kimura. Brownstein explains, “Within the broader thematic context of The Center Won’t Hold album, 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. 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.”
