Daughters Lead an Exploration of Psychological Tension in "Guest House" Video

The clip from 'You Won't Get What You Want' comes ahead of a North American winter tour

Heavy-minded unit Daughters are about to head out on a winter North American tour, and now the band have unloaded a new video for "Guest House," a track from their 2018 album You Won't Get What You Want.

The video is directed by A.F.Cortes, and once again, Daughters keep things purely black and white. This allows for what a press release calls "thought-provoking pieces that played on darkness and light, shadows and shading, to impart a variety of emotions, from the magic of a flickering candle to the beauty of the human form."

For "Guest House" specifically, this leads to the exploration of psychological tension.

The press release states: "It is always exciting to see our work interpreted by talented artists. We first became familiar with Andres through his wonderful photographic work. His ability to capture unique moments, often missed by other photographers, is uncanny and we trusted him to be able to bring the same abilities as a director. "
