Deerhunter’s back with a new video for Monomania track, “Back to the Middle”. Shot in London and directed by Olivier Groulx, the nostalgically-fudged clip focuses on Pusher actor Durassie Kiangangu, who lip syncs the song in drag. Given the song’s dusty Strokesian instrumentation, the whole thing works together like peas and carrots in Ms. Gump’s dining room. Check it out below; dancing, singing, and wig optional.
In related news, we caught Deerhunter’s performance this week at Chicago’s Metro. Check out Dan Pfleegor’s full report here. Or, you know, go see ’em yourselves.
