TAKEN FROM NEW ALBUM
IT WON/T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME
OUT NOW ON ROCK ACTION RECORDS
Today The Twilight Sad share a new video for Shooting Dennis Hopper Shooting. The band released the album, IT WON/T BE LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME, in January to critical acclaim.
Speaking of the video, band member and co-director Brendan Jay Smith offered the following: “I found an old leather bag at the back of my Grandfather’s cupboard with a collection of super 8 film reels from the late 60’s. When I thought about connecting this with the glitched layers from DLT’s album artwork it felt like we could continue the records themes of distorted and fractured memories, whilst combining old and new formats and blurring the lines between these mediums. Filming in an old abandoned swimming pool from the 1920’s gave us an opportunity to reflect on past memories, drawing from my Grandfathers original footage but projecting them in the present in an altered state, by using contemporary methods.”
Co-director Cameron Gleave added: “To add depth to the 2D animation, the processed Super 8 was then projected in Govanhill Baths in the Southside of Glasgow. The way the light interacted with elements of the architecture; casting shadows, reflecting off surfaces and revealing the texture of the building beneath added another layer of organic distortion. When cut into the final edit this combination of animation, super 8 and real-life footage gave a feeling of disorientation and blurred the lines of reality.”
