Los Angeles teen punks The Regrettes have shared a video for their track “Seashore.”

Directed by Claire Vogel, the clip sees the band giving voice to disenfranchised women throughout history.

Says Vogel: “I wanted to pair the defiance of the lyrics with a handful of historical vignettes that embrace women taking control of the situations that have held them back. I wanted each scene to hint at how people might have freely spoken their inner thoughts in those moments should they have had the privilege.”

One shot sees band leader Lydia Night taking a swipe at the current incumbent of the White House, Night singing from a lectern dressed as the president.

“I initially dedicated this song to Donald Trump due to him being a bully,” Night says. “The video represents resistance. Given the fact that people in those time periods couldn’t stand up for themselves, I wanted to make sure that I’m always standing up for things that I believe in and for myself.”
