Sleater-Kinney Shares ‘Can I Go On’ Video


Sleater-Kinney shared a video for their single “Can I Go On” off of their 2019 album The Center Won’t Hold produced by St. Vincent and out now on Mom + Pop Music. Directed by longtime friend of the band Ashley Connor, the visual stars Lauri Guzda and Mami Kimura. Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein detailed the video in a statement:

“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.”
