The New Pornographers have revealed the video for Brill Bruisers single “Dancehall Domine.” Directed by Leblanc + Cudmore, it finds Carl Newman and Kathryn Calder performing in a film studio amidst some absurd circumstances. Explains co-director Scott Cudmore:
Sometimes I like watching the b-roll or behind the scenes or outtakes on DVDs and blu-rays… “Dancehall Domine” is meant to feel like a whole bunch of those clips sort of strung together as if they’re taken from some fucked up Italian or French musical maybe. Or a bunch of fragments from films like that — thrillers, bad romances, in one case we’re clearly referencing Clouzot’s famous L’enfer tests. We even have the man himself in there!
Is it just me or does Calder look kind of like Lana Del Rey in this video? Watch it below.
