Double Date with Death "Creature" (video)
Published Sep 07, 2016Montreal garage punks Double Date with Death will unleash their debut LP Headspace at the end of the month, but they've prefaced it with a clip for "Creature" — and Exclaim! has the exclusive premiere.
Clocking in at just a minute and a half, the clip accompanies an equally fast and fun tune that packs in plenty of lo-fi guitars, fuzzed-out vocals and bashing drums despite the short runtime.
"We wanted something close to our sound — fast, aggressive and fun," the band tells Exclaim! "Our idea was to honour the movie The Creature from the Black Lagoon and hockey, [while] Yann Tivrier, the director, wanted to create chaos with all the shots he had."
Black-and-white performance footage, street shots and suspenseful scenes featuring the titular monster blend together rapidly to achieve those goals — with a healthy dose of hockey clips sprinkled in for good measure — making for a visual experience that's as gripping and anxiety-inducing as the song itself.
Headspace is officially out on September 30 through REC Records. For now, watch the video of "Creature" in the player below.
