Total Dust, the debut album from Toronto based Dusted came out last summer to wide acclaim. The duo of singer-songwriter Brian Borcherdt and producer Leon Taheny have premiered a fittingly beautiful video to accompany the album’s track ‘Bruises’. The video was shot in Australia by director Ben Portas. Watch it now.
Earlier this month, Dusted premiered a video to accompany ‘(Into the) Atmosphere’, the first dreamy single lifted from their recently released debut album Total Dust.
Now the duo of Holy Fuck’s Brian Borcherdt and Final Fantasy’s Leon Taheny are offering a new video for ‘There Somehow’, the album’s short and dark closing track.
Here’s what director Scott Cudmore said about the video:
“Brian sent me the Dusted record last year and I immediately fell in love with it. It stayed in my car for almost the entire year. Something about the sounds and textures on that record, I guess they made me think that they could complement images and sounds of my own. The subject matter of ‘There Somehow’ and the short length of it really made sense with this material. It’s a different kind of project – it’s not a music video for a ‘single’ but more of a little film collaboration between two existing works.”
‘(Into the) Atmosphere’, the first dreamy single lifted from Dusted‘s debut album Total Dust, has just received visual treatment.
Here’s what Brian Borcherdt said about the video:
“Here’s a video of us playing on a rooftop next to our favorite tequila bar, on a hot Toronto evening. I think this accurately demonstrates my C+ ability at lip syncing and my A+ ability at making sunglasses suddenly disappear and reappear on my face.”
The video was directed by Aaron Kopff and Paul Gerretsen and you can watch it below. Total Dust is out now via Hand Drawn Dracula and Polyvinyl.
Following Dusted’s first single ‘(Into the) Atmosphere’, the twosome have just dropped a brand new cut, ‘Property Lines’, off their forthcoming album.
‘Property Lines’ features Brian’s three other Holy Fuck bandmates Graham Walsh, Matt McQuaid and Brad KilPatrick. Here it is.
Toronto-by-way-of-Yarmouth, Nova Scotia singer songwriter Brian Borcherdt, co-founder of electronic outfit Holy Fuck, teamed up with producer Leon Taheny (Final Fantasy, Rituals, Bruce Pensinsula) for a new project called Dusted.
Their debut album, Total Dust, will hit stores on July 10th via Hand Drawn Dracula and Polyvinyl. You can pre-order it from both labels.
According to the press release, the forthcoming album “resides in an atmosphere that is sometimes melodic, sometimes haunting, and always clouded by a fuzzy glow. With string arrangements and half-hidden guitar feedback held together by the occasional tambourine and minimal drum machine, the stripped down mood perfectly complements a collection of songs that are more than capable of standing on their own merits.”
The first single off Total Dust, ‘(Into the) Atmosphere’ emerged yesterday. Listen to it below and also check out the teaser clips.
