May cover story stars White Lung had one of the 50 Best Albums Of The Year So Far with their excellent Paradise. They’ve also released a bunch of great videos for the project, and the latest one comes today in service of the frenetic standout track “Sister.” A loose 1-800 hotline narrative unfolds after an add featuring Mish Barber-Way urges to “call now for a wild chat!” The ad certainly didn’t lie as Barber-Way is basically just her badass rockstar self on the other end of the phone line. She guzzles wine, throws up a solid chunk in the shape of a record and spins it, and wreaks utter havoc on the room — all while holding the phone. Here’s what director Justin Gradin had to say about the clip:
In a lonely world a man seeks to find love through his telephone. He discovers two women with whom he becomes obsessed with from their captivating and elegant conversations. In the end, these two women’s thrilling lives and escalating partying leave the man feeling isolated and rejected again. It’s basically a 90s chat line commercial on PCP.
This hotline does not bling. Check it out.
Paradise is out now on Domino.
