Twist recently premiered the video for “Calendar Girls”. The track comes from the band’s 2016 album, Spectral, which was released on Buzz Records in the fall of 2016. The video was directed by Brittany Lucas and Jacq Andrade, and is set at a house party, with running subtitles that explore the inner monologues of the guests as they interact over the course of a night.
As lead singer Laura Hermiston says:
“‘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.”
The band are currently on tour and recently played SXSW shows with Jimmy Eat World, Weaves and Casper Skulls later this week. Read our review of their performance at the Dine Alone SXSW showcase here.
