video: Boy Harsher – LA
In advance of the release of their incredible new album Careful, coming next week, Boy Harsher shares the stunning video for pulsing synthwave reverie and album highlight “LA“, a track that the group says “defines the album, by both mourning lost / lustful opportunities and craving that fleeting escape”. The song’s intensely visceral longing and palpable tension is complemented beautifully by the vid, a collaboration between Boy Harsher + director Kathleen Dycaico, co-directed by Jill Ferraro, shot by Kofi Carson, and starring Kathleen and Tara-Jo Tashna. Kathleen explains the video’s premise:
“The story follows Hunter + Angel, two country camgirls in love and longing. They constantly film and watch their live-streamed love, surviving on cherries and beer, until signs that “Time’s Up” appear in the world around them. Hunter + Angel eventually take their memories out back and use them for target practice, destroying the images of their love.
LA is about longing, the inevitable end of precious time, and centering heartbreak in the sights — Steady, now, aim and –“
Careful is out next Friday, February 1st, on limited neon orange vinyl via the group’s own Nude Club Records.
