The New Pornographers debut new video

The New Pornographers debut new video for "Whiteout Conditions"

The New Pornographers debut a new video for the track “Whiteout Conditions” the title-track off their current release. Whiteout Conditions is the first release on the band’s own Collected Works Records imprint in partnership with Concord Records.

Of writing the new record, founder and frontman A.C. Newman notes that, “At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesn’t sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Let’s try and rock in a different way.”

Director Kevan Funk on the video: “I wanted to tell a set of stories featuring characters who could act as conduits to explore that tension, each of them repressing some sort of tormenting emotion (guilt, shame, self-loathing) that they haven’t been able to reconcile internally. The facade of the mall, with its surreal fantasy elements, provided an effective metaphorical backdrop.”
