Times New Viking's new video for "Ever Falling in Love" premiered today on IFC.com. Watch "Ever Falling in Love" now at IFC.com. Adam from Times New Viking talked with IFC's Grayson Currin about their new album Dancer Equired and the video concept.
Read the full interview here.
How does the video concept work with that song conceit?
It works good, because there are two characters in it. And in the song, Beth is singing, and I'm singing. I sing the boy character, and she sings the girl character. My lyrics and voice are the actual story, and then her lyrics are kind of what the girl is thinking. We knew we needed a video for that song, and we knew that, after our last video, we wanted to step it up even more and try to do the stop-motion idea. We tried to make a little French New Wave stop-motion. Breathless was kind of an inspiration for the video.
Times New Viking will begin their US tour on May 26 in Boston and will continue through July. Dancer Equired is available on CD, LP and digital download in the Merge store.
