Published May 20, 2015"I flew to L.A. / Born in New Jersey / I drive on the highway." That's a lyric from Ducktails' new song "Headbanging in the Mirror," and it also describes the accompanying music video.
The song is a jangling indie pop number that's a close sonic counterpoint for songwriter Matt Mondanile's work as Real Estate's lead guitarist. In the accompanying clip, we see cinematic slo-mo shots of Mondanile driving around California (where he lives). This means we see lots of deserts and palm trees, and Mondanile strums his guitar on the roof of a Los Angeles home (Workaholics style).
Scroll past Ducktails' North American tour schedule to watch the video below. "Headbanging in the Mirror" appears on the forthcoming album St. Catherine, due out on July 24 on Domino Records.
