White Lung are revving up to take us to Paradise on their next LP, but before the record arrives next week, the band have shared a brand new clip for "Below."
In a press release, frontwoman Mish Barber-Way describes the song as her "Stevie-Nicks-meets-Celine-Dion" ballad. It's about glamorous women, and was inspired by a quote from a recent interview with Camille Paglia, in which the author and cultural critic said: Beauty fades. Beauty is transient. That is why we value it. Feminism's failure to acknowledge that beauty is a value in itself, that even if a woman manages to achieve it for a particular moment, she has contributed something to the culture.
"It's a song about the preservation of glamour and beauty," Barber-Way further explained.
As for the video, it stars AnnaLynne McCord alongside other Marilyn Monroe lookalikes watching the band perform in a fancy theatre. It was directed by Richard Bates Jr., who recently made Trash Fire - a film that also stars McCord and Barber-Way.
Paradise is due out on May 6 via Domino.
