San Diego pop-punks The Bombpops have released a music video for their new song “Be Sweet”. The song pays tribute to the late Teenage Bottlerocket drummer Brandon Carlisle who tragically died in late 2015. Watch it below.
Vocalist Jen Razavi had this to say:
“’Be Sweet’ is an homage to our dear friend, the late Brandon Carlisle of the band Teenage Bottlerocket. Back in 2010, we were partying in a hotel room with Brandon and Ray Carlisle. There was a guitar in the room and Brandon was showing us an idea he had for a song. He had written it for his wife, but he told us we should play it and change the lyrics to ‘getting rad with my boyfriend.’ He wrote down all the lyrics on four sheets of hotel notepad paper. Since then, the melody and the chord progression were forgotten, but I still had the lyrics. So we wrote our own version of the song in the studio and used every single lyric that Brandon had written down.”
