Published Apr 15, 2020Vancouver's Booty EP are preparing for the release of their debut album, and they've shared a taste of what's in store with a video for the new single "Airbag."
The song is a soft-focus dream-pop tune, blending detail-rich lyrics about a brush with the law with sweetly sleepy keyboard tones and lo-fi rhythms. In keeping with the song's nostalgic tone, the VHS-quality video takes audiences on a day out to Coney Island, NY.
The clip was directed by the band's own Alli Deleo, and it stars bandmate Francis Hooper. The duo explained in a statement:
We were in New York playing some shows and decided to go check out Coney Island, with a camcorder of course. The song is about the feeling of wanting to fix so many things (personally or systemically) that we can't decide what to focus on, so we don't end up fixing anything. The amusement park, with all its eerie imagery and shrill sounds, is a place where you really hope everything is being fixed right away. The song is based on an absurd fictional story I (Alli) wrote, so Coney Island felt like the perfect setting to have Francis mouthing the lyrics into a $20 camcorder.
"Airbag" comes from the upcoming album Don't Fix Anything ;), due out in the late summer. Check out the premiere of the video below.
