Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad, who make wistful, melodic punk rock as Girlpool, are releasing their new album Powerplant this week, and the duo has shared a new visual for record's title track. The clip, directed by Philip Steiger, is set in a bowling alley, as Tucker and Tividad perform the song to a group of forlorn teens in the background. Towards the end, a video director with a megaphone interrupts the shoot and we see that the whole scene is contrived.
"This music video is a meta-narrative nightmare exploring the power dynamics and manipulation behind an insincere candidness," director Phillip Steiger told The FADER over email.
Girlpool's Powerplant album is out May 12. Watch the new video for the album's title track above.
