Twin River – “Antony” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Vancouver/Montreal band Twin River have announced their sophomore album Passing Shade and revealed the video for their recent single “Antony.” In the flamboyant video directed by Megan-Magdalena, several masked characters stripped of their identities paint their faces and put on a performance for a group of easily impressed, pink-wigged bystanders. After applying an exorbitant amount of make-up and zipping up their vintage dresses, the masked figures indulge in a moment of ecstasy, celebrating their curated identities under sparklers and streamers. As they shove cake into their faces, though, the eagerness of their audience generates an eerie feeling, as if it is a show for society’s watchful eye. Watch the video below and check out the tracklist for Passing Shade.
