Porches. and his Sweetheart Frankie Cosmos Take Manhattan in Video for “Leather”

When speaking about his experience taking pictures of Ratking for our latest issue’s cover story, photographer Harry Gould Harvey IV said New York is “pretty, but without forcibly being pretty.” I thought of that sentiment the other day when I randomly got turned around in Lower Manhattan and ended up walking blissfully in the wrong direction for 20 minutes, and I thought of it again just now, when I watched the new Porches. video. Porches. is the experimental rock project of songwriter Aaron Maine, and “Leather” is a tepid, deflated pop song that features backing vocals from his real-life sweetie and bandmate Greta Kline, bka Frankie Cosmos, who is a prolific songwriter in her own right. The VHS-quality official clip follows Maine and Kline as they float aimlessly around downtown NYC and beyond, soaking up that unflashy, bleak-but-beautiful charm that Harvey was talking about.
