New York-based Ryan Staake from Pomp&Clout transforms all-girl Japanese rock band The Suzan into vampy mini-satans, targeting a lonely innocent girl fan, in Devils.

It's Ryan's second Suzan video following Home, and Rachel Dainer-Best's she-devil costumes set the garage-punk tone. "I then worked to give a believable aged film look to the whole piece, which I think ties it all together nicely in a consciously campy way," says Ryan.
