Parakeet – “Darumasanga” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Yuck bassist Mariko Doi has been slowly releasing work from her solo project Parakeet since the beginning of 2012, which culminated in the Shonen Hearts EP, released in October. “Darumasanga” is the EP’s closing track, and today we’ve got a video for it. Directed, shot, and edited by video duo — and Doi’s former collaborators — Babanuki (aka Tom Palliser and Ian Anderson), the clip features British actors Jamie Broadbridge and Lashkar Chauhan palling around in hoodies, doing magic marker graffitti, and eventually hooking up in a public restroom. Check out the video, and stream Shonen Hearts, below.
The Shonen Hearts EP is out now. Buy it at Parakeet’s Bandcamp.
