"Calendar Girls" (video)

BY Calum SlingerlandPublished Mar 14, 2017

Laura Hermiston of BB Guns and Holy Fuck's Brian Borcherdt delivered their debut LP as Twist last year, and in looking back at Spectral, the group have shared a video for "Calendar Girls."

Directed and produced by Brittany Lucas and Jacq Andrade, the video is set at a house party, examining less what men and women are saying while in conversation, but more so what they're thinking.

The band explained the thought process behind the new clip in a statement, which reads:

"Calendar Girls" is a reflection on how people treat each other like products, in relationships and otherwise. I was thinking about men's magazines and how the way women are objectified creates a mentality where romantic and sexual relationships become a form of consumption. Sometimes it feels like the drive to acquire material possessions and the desire to be with someone gets some how mixed up. It changes how you appreciate the people in your life when society encourages you to form superficial infatuations with people you've never met.

Spectral is out now through Buzz Records. Watch the video for "Calendar Girls" in the player below.
