Monomyth – “Patsy” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Halifax indie rockers Monomyth just released the video for “Patsy” from their album Saturnalia Regalia!, and it’s a weird one. The song is a slightly ethereal yet punchy retro pop song, the sort of rock ‘n’ roll ballad you’d expect to hear at a school dance in some ultra-hip version of the 1950s. Except in director Seth Smith’s video, the song soundtracks an ’80s-looking wedding between a big-haired bride and a groom with a head like a disco ball. The festivities pick up with a harrowing toast from the father of the bride. It’s quite a thing to see, and you can see it below.
