The New Pornographers released their most recent album, Whiteout Conditions, back in April, and today the band debuted a new Kevan Funk-directed video for its title track. Funk explained what the video means to him:
I wanted to tell a set of stories featuring characters who could act as conduits to explore that tension, each of them repressing some sort of tormenting emotion (guilt, shame, self-loathing) that they haven’t been able to reconcile internally. The facade of the mall, with its surreal fantasy elements, provided an effective metaphorical backdrop.
Whiteout Conditions is out now via Collected Works.
