DEAF Drop Haunting Video 'Truancy'

DEAF Drop Haunting Video 'Truancy'

Thursday 20th September, 2018 1:04PM

Wellington post-punk / dream-pop unit DEAF have unveiled the cinematic sequel to their debut video 'Shards', continuing the late night adventures of a cowboy-hat wearing protagonist navigating a post-party environment. 'Truancy' delves deeper into romantic territory than the previous work, the beautifully shot visuals created again by James Henley and Hayden Ellis (also bassist for DEAF) depicts a relationship blooming on the dancefloor, with what could be viewed as a supernatural twist at the end. The filmmakers lifted the lid on some of the ideas expressed in their clip - read their words, watch it below, and catch DEAF celebrating the video's release this Friday at Caroline with Glove and Slow...

"We wanted to make something that was simultaneously romantic and twitching with anxiety: a "meet-cute" that looked like film noir or expressionist horror. If 'Shards' is about feeling out of place in a social situation, 'Truancy' is about the uncertain thrill of newfound intimacy, and losing one's self in the moment."

Aucklanders can catch DEAF playing at The Wine Cellar with Glove on Saturday 29th September. DEAF's five song debut collection is out in October.
