a co-release brought to you by Father/Daughter Records + Miscreant Records
18 September 2015
Ben Hopkins is the only half of the duo to appear in the video for their new single “Ugly Cherries,” and he takes advantage of the screen time by putting himself opposite … well, himself, just not performing, showing the gap between on the stage and off, and how freeing and constricting both can be.
“I’ve set my ‘best self,’ aka me in crazy monster drag, against my ‘worst self,’ aka me miserably staring at my cellphone alone in my apartment, in an attempt to take stock of my whole self,” Hopkins explained. “All of the behaviors within the video are my own, and in staging them side by side I’m trying to take ownership of the good, bad, weird, and fabulous parts of my personality.” -- Stereogum
