The video for Former Ghosts‘ ‘New Orleans‘ has premiered online this week (via P4K).
The Joy Division meets Casiotone For The Painfully Alone meets Digital-Ash Bright Eyes meets similar relentlessly unhappy but melodically wonderful band project pioneered by the simple yet evocative lyrics of Freddy Rupert have won a lot of us over. ‘New Orleans‘ is an exceptional example and perfect introduction to the band.
The video, directed by Michael Fierstein features girls eating cake, drinking and indulging in a lot of impossibly obvious metaphors for a nice clip to accomodate a brilliant track.
‘New Orleans‘ appears on ‘New Love‘, due for release on November 8th through Upset The Rhythm.
