Little Scream – “Love As A Weapon” Video

Laurel Sprengelmeyer, the Montreal-based pop experimenter who records as Little Scream, has roped in practically the entire indie rock A-list to appear on Cult Following, her forthcoming album. As Pitchfork points out, the LP has a very impressive list of guests: Sufjan Stevens! Sharon Van Etten! The National’s Bryce and Aaron Dessner! TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone! Owen Pallett! Folk veteran Mary Margaret O’Hara, who isn’t indie rock but is impressive! And she made the whole thing with Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry, credited as her “creative partner.” Dan Huiting directed the colorful, energetic video for her peppy, frenetic single “Love As A Weapon,” and it’s heavy on wood-panel kitsch, snowy landscapes, and vogue dancers. Check it out below.

Cult Following is out 5/6 on Merge (and, in Canada, Dine Alone).
