Sondre Lerche – “Private Caller” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Back in March we premiered “Domino,” from Sondre Lerche’s upcoming self-titled LP. In that post I mentioned how Lerche had embraced Brooklyn a bit more on his new record. The same applies to his video for the brisk “Private Caller,” which looks like it was shot at Williamsburg’s Union Pool. (You can see a sign that says “chemical balancing” in a few of the shots, a remnant from Union Pool’s pest control and pool supply store past.) Lerche and his band play on stage, while glamorous women of various ages and hair colors look on moodily. There’s some eccentric mid-century styling here — vintage mirrors, glasses, clothing — that makes it seems like Lerche’s playing for a group of ladies that just popped out of a time capsule. That might explain their moodiness. Kate Barker-Froyland directed the video. Watch:
