Montreal/Winnipeg combo Chic Gamine haven't released an album in five years, but with that finally set to change on October 23 with Light a Match, the group have rolled out a video for the title track.
The video for this choral-style soul-pop sugar rush takes place in a tiny diorama, where scratchy, faux-vintage footage of the band appears in the window of a tiny cabin. We also see life-sized footage of a couple of gentlemen playing what resembles a game of cards; instead of cards, however, they use old photographs, and they eventually send these mementos skyward via a homemade rocket. The video was directed by Mike Maryniuk.
