Published Nov 23, 2017Guelph folk performer Ivan Rivers certainly didn't take a traditional route in the video for his new track "Confidante." Instead, he teamed up with Tim & Eric collaborator David Liebe Hart to create a moving short film of sorts.
Directed by Danny Dunlop, the video sees Liebe Hart sing songs on the streets of London, ON. As a press writeup says, "Much like The Comedy was to Tim Heidecker and Entertainment to Neil Hamburger, 'Confidante' is Liebe Hart's quiet, nuanced masterwork."
Whether or not the video lives up to those cultishly adored Rick Alverson films is for the viewer to decide. You can watch the video for "Confidante" in full below.
Rivers will perform the song at a series of upcoming shows, the dates of which are also available below.
11/25 Toronto, ON - The Baby G in Toronto
12/09 London, ON - The Richmond Tavern
12/14 Bayfield, ON - House show
12/23 Exeter, ON - The Cultural Collective
