Published Oct 03, 2012Menomena released Moms back in September through Barsuk Records, and as the experimental Portland pop outfit go about promoting it with a tour, they have now unveiled a video for the album cut "Plumage."
The clip is just as quirky as the song itself, as it shows the band members walking through a very barren-looking desert while gradually changing outfits in each shot. They end up dressed up in costumes that range from tennis player to gun-weirding commando to cigar-weilding playboy prior to the video's scantily-clad conclusion. If there was ever an appropriate time to do a dress-up video like this, a few weeks before Halloween is definitely it.
In a statement, director Trevor McMahan said that the video was "the ultimate illustration of the beautiful conflict in the band's music — that aural struggle between instruments and ideas that is complex, satisfying, and always unmistakably Menomena."
