Dan Deacon has unveiled his video for “True Thrush”, which he co-directed with Showbeast’s Ben O’Brien. The two based the video on a popular drawing game from Baltimore art collective Wham City, which itself was originally based on the children’s game telephone.

A recent press release offers more context: “Deacon’s concept for the video is loosely related to the lyrics, and mirrors his use of asymmetrical repetition and evolving patterns. For the video, Dan and Ben filmed a simple 13-second scene. That scene was then shown to the next team. After seeing the video that team had 1 hour to recreate it — characters, props, set, costumes, and actions — as close to exactly as possible from only their memory.” Make sense? Catch it below and then tell the closest person next to you about it.

As previously reported, Deacon’s forthcoming LP, America, hits stores August 28th via Domino. In support, he’s announced even more North American tour dates, keeping him on the road through the middle of December. Consult the updated itinerary below.
