This week's issue of Phoenix New Times, on news stands now, features a profile on local electro pop artist Jonathan Sakas. Sakas has a show tomorrow, May 26, at Clubhouse Music Venue, and you can get a sneak peek of what to expect from his performance by checking out his brand-new video, "I Just Wanna Rock."
The clip was directed by local filmmaker Devin Berko and was shot around town in places such as the Icehouse. Check it out after the jump, and read more about what inspired Sakas to write the track.
I Just Wanna Rock
You're always talking but you don't say much
You always want more every time we touch
You never give me any personal space
You always need something, always in my face
I break up with you like 10 times a week
It's nails on a chalkboard whenever you speak
There's nothing to say now, I won't change my mind
It's lust and it's stupid, it's wasting my time
I don't wanna know, just say it isn't so
Stop stop I don't wanna talk talk
So please don't turn me off off
I just wanna rock
You're always lying right through your teeth
But we both know what lies beneath
You always get mad when we talk on the phone
I wish that you would just leave me alone
At first it was fun, it was just something new
But now it's just torture and I'm turning blue
