Toronto’s The Anti-Queens has released a brand new music video for their their song “Overthinking.” The song is featured on the band’s latest release, a full-length album entitled Disenchanted out now via Stomp Records.

For over a decade, The Anti-Queens have been a prominent force in Toronto’s music scene. The band is led by the fiercely talented and dynamic duo of Emily Bones and Valerie Knox, who bring a punk-rock energy that challenges the male-dominated music industry. Written by Bones and Knox over the course of the pandemic, Disenchanted is a conscious meeting of vulnerability, self reflection, and finding one’s self worth and motivation to attack what life throws at you head-on.

The new music video for “Overthinking” was directed by Michael Crusty and Valerie Knox and produced by Crusty Media. Filmed by Michael Crusty, Sarah Mathieson, and edited by Michael Crusty. Shot against the picturesque backdrop of Uxbridge, ON in August 2023, the outdoor scenes radiate with the warmth of carefree summer days, perfectly embodying the song’s theme of navigating the mental labyrinth of overthinking.

The band reflects:

“’Overthinking’ is about the mental spiral of stressing over things that are beyond our control. We wanted the music video to visually echo this theme. The summer scenes are meant to capture that carefree happiness you feel when spending a warm, sunny day playing with your dog while in the company of a best friend… We shot the full-band segment in a brightly lit white room, opting for all-black attire to dramatically heighten the visual contrast and intensify the mood.”
