New Bishop Allen Video – “True Or False” (Stereogum Premiere)
You’ve heard a couple of tracks from Bishop Allen’s third album Grr…. Now you can see one. The Brooklyn group’s on tour right as we speak — It’d be great if their live show included as many smiling flappers as they do in this chipper black and white “True Or False” clip. (Or any smiling flappers, really.) It was directed by Randy Bell with choreography by Andrea Delmonico. The song itself is sung by BA’s Darbie Nowatka Rice while the guys — now with more facial hair — hold it down otherwise.
Grr… is out via Dead Oceans. As mentioned, Bishop Allen’s out on tour, where you can expect to hear some post-Grr… sounds as well.
