Menomena Debuts New Video
Barsuk Records has just released Menomena‘s video for “Plumage,” off their new album Moms. The video was directed by Trevor McMahan, who described the clip as “the ultimate illustration of the beautiful conflict in the band’s music – that aural struggle between instruments and ideas that is complex, satisfying, and always unmistakably Menomena.”
On the production of the video, he continues, “our crew weathered some serious acts of god during this production – including, but not limited to: a shooting, bomb squad evacuation, a news helicopter crash, thunderstorms, near electrocution by lightning (which can actually be seen in the last shot of the video), gale force winds, destroyed equipment, and flash flooding two shoot days in a row – and the video nearly missed seeing the light of day. It was almost as if Jesus did not want us to make this Menomena video. But apparently, we had more chest hair.”
Moms is the Portland-based band’s fifth album, and their first as a duo. The band is currently in the midst of their fall headlining tour, which features support from PVT. The tour will be followed by a European tour with support from Stacks, as well as an appearance at the revered All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in the UK.
