Oakland, California's Foxtails Brigade have dropped a short horror film of a music video for their latest chamber-pop single "We Are Not Ourselves."
"We Are Not Ourselves" is billed as a "salt rock-filled strawberry-cupcake-of-a-ride." The video screams cute with its wall of guinea pig portraits and '50s all-American girl wardrobe... until you see the blood and dark magic and the question-raising gift box. Drummer Dominic Mercurio does double duty as director of the music video, while singer Laura Weinbach stars as the clip's villain. It's a modern day Grimms' fairytale of a doppelganger's ability to dupe even those closest to you, complementing the song's orchestral pop peppered with flashes of yelping and chaos.
Foxtails Brigade released their self-titled album, available on Bandcamp, in April on OIM Records. The band’s third full-length album serves as a confirmation of the band's blend of indie and chamber pop, melding together percussion and synths with cinematic arrangements and guitars.
