First Ghost "If You Want To" (video)
Published May 19, 2016Toronto rockers First Ghost dropped their latest EP Secret Talk earlier this spring, and now the band are set to unveil a video for "If You Want To" from that same record — and Exclaim! has your exclusive first look at it.
The video was directed by the band's filmmaker and photographer friend Andrew Harris, and as drummer Danny Foster-Roman puts it: "The visuals combine retro film style with modern imagery which brings to life the song's unique marriage of surf rock, pop and emo."
That blend of upbeat rock'n'roll gets paired with black-and-white footage that follows a young woman making eyes at the camera, surrounded by shade-less lamps and a fancy chess set. For a little visual variety, those slightly surrealist scenes get spliced together with some more straightforward shots of the band performing.
