Chastity – “Peroxide” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Canadian upstart Chastity is the project of Brandon Williams and friends. They make a sound which marries and mirrors the disparate coexistence of both trailer parks and luxury cars in their native Whitby, Ontario with a melding of deft melodies and controlled chaos. Their first single after signing with Last Gang Records is the lush, beautiful “Peroxide,” and today it receives a visual accompaniment.

The Justin Singer-directed clip features a woman going through the gamut of emotions that comes with the death of her partner. Underwater arguments, tender moments of affection, and his gut-wrenching absence take on the feel of cinema with the gorgeous chords and melodies of the song scoring and punctuating the narrative, ending abruptly on the woman’s distraught crying as a haunting atmospheric sweep dissipates. Watch.
