    Here's an amalgamation you didn't know you needed in your life: what if the angular guitar riffs of the Strokes were married to the pop sensibilities of Walk the Moon and they raised their baby on a strictly Scene Kid diet? Voila, you have the Karma Killers. That may sound like a paradoxical and impossible fusion, but it takes one viewing of the music video for the Karma Killers' "Domino" (which we're exclusively premiering today) for it to be clear that these New Jersey punk-pop rockers have done just that and made something beautiful in the process. The track has everything you want in guitar pop: sharp guitar lines and riffs, ear-burrowing hooks, and the immediate sense that you want to jump up and down at a major NYC rock club singing along with the band at the top of your lungs. Check out an exclusive quote from Karma Killers frontman Micky James and watch the bad-ass LA centric video below. Also be sure to catch the band on this year's Vans Warped Tour.

    Micky: "Shooting the video for 'Domino' was a thrill. It was a little nerve wracking getting lost driving in a 1968 Mercury Monterey around downtown LA. Driving around the city aimlessly was beautiful. Those specific shots that were captured are some of my favorite moments of the video. Very pleased with the outcome."
