DOOMSQUAD - Who Owns Noon in Sandusky?

Directed by - Jesi Jordan

'Who Owns Noon in Sandusky' is a call to all those who want to be naked and surrender to a single still moment, to reclaim time through dance. It was the first song we made while writing Total Time, and it ultimately became the album's opening cut. It's a straight up dance track that gets us into a space where we are open to exploring our personal relationships against a background of movement, consciousness, and physical form. The whole album is somewhat related to understanding circadian rhythm, and 'Who Owns Noon' set our path for seeing and breathing into all ideas about Total Time.

'Who owns noon?' is a quote we heard that originated from a rally in Sandusky, Ohio. Basically, the railway company was trying to standardize a schedule for the trains to follow, which meant that the existing time being kept in Sandusky had to change. Citizens of Sandusky organized a rally attempting to reclaim 'their' time, shouting, 'Who owns noon in Sandusky?' 'We do!' 'We own noon in Sandusky! We do!'

Words from director:

Jesi was performing her mind-bending yoga series in Mexico City when she decided to adventure south with a bag full of costumes she hand sewed on the way. Her destination was to return to all of the towns she’s lived in while making her traditionally animated works. However, this time the objective was to animate herself within those spaces and allow her experiences to manifest into a video of its own. Incorporating her two favourite dancing partners she met at salsa clubs, every costume was a reflection of the space it was filmed in and the materials she would find there. The video was shot with an iPod and a selfie stick stuck to a chair and other times held with the assistance of her visiting mother, a traveling photographer, and a powerful witch she met in the mountains.


DOOMSQUAD have unveiled a new music video for "Who Owns Noon in Sandusky?" The track serves as the opening cut on the group's latest album Total Time, and the clip itself arrives courtesy of director and friend of the band, Jesi the Elder.

Jesi was also responsible for the vibrantly coloured, ridiculously fun costumes and masks that brighten up the video. Perception-altering faces on the back of heads, a bicycle bedazzled with balloons and some expertly utilized mirrors make for a wildly surreal viewing experience to accompany the song.
