The New Pornographers - "War On The East Coast" Video

Last month, New Pornographers released the first single from their forthcoming Brill Bruisers, its awesome title track. Today we get its second offering, “War On The East Coast” — sung and presumably penned by Dan Bejar — along with a video directed by Thom Glunt. Of the video, New Pornos frontman A.C. Newman said, “We were going for some mid-nineties second-tier Britpop attitude. In the past, I’ve never really wanted to be in the video. But with this, we wanted to have fun and fully be IN the video.” Check it out.

Brill Bruisers is out 8/26 via Matador.

  1. This has got to be a shoo in for video of the week.

  2. oh well

  3. When I saw the tracklist, I was willing to bet a hefty sum that this was a Bejar track. I feel validated. And in a not at all surprising development, turns out Bejar’s not into lip syncing. Who knew?

  4. for those with more time on your hands, can you start a twitter account called DanBejarDontCare and write about all the things dan bejar doesn’t care about. This has to be his 10th song with the phrase I dont care.

  5. This may be the most Dan Bejariest thing Dan Bejar has ever done. So on brand. I don’t care, I don’t care.

    Like he’s going to sing in his music video. Please, he has shirt buttons to unbutton and places to lounge about in.
