Jeff Rosenstock dropped a new video for the song "Melba" off his recent album, POST-. Directed by Ben Epstein and David Combs, the video packs the kinetic, off-kilter, destructive punch that's everything you'd expect in a Jeff Rosenstock video.

Co-director David Combs says of the concept, "Jeff wanted to make a video featuring a character who, consequence free, carelessly destroys everything around them. The idea of such a character reminded me of how often the abuse of power is a thoughtless exercise for those who hold it, so we decided to expand on the idea and make it a commentary on how abusive patterns get replicated -- where the effects are passed downward hierarchically and the people with the least power experience the consequences most intensely. You know, also it's fun to watch people smash shit, so we tried to have a good time with that too."
