For anyone who had an imaginary friend growing up (shout out to my childhood BFF "Reddy" who fondly remains in the furthest reaches of my brain), this new video for Expensive Looks’ "Vanishers" will strike a chord. It features a very adorable child who escapes real life trauma with what could potentially be called a menacing-looking panda if it weren't for that scene where they share french fries at Coney Island. It perfectly encapsulates how "Vanishers" manages to conjure such warm dissonance. Expensive Looks' debut Dark Matters is out now on Group Tightener.
