White Lung shares new video for Sister
19th September 2016
Canadian punk band White Lung have released a new video for track ‘Sister.’ It was directed by Justin Gradin, who also directed White Lung’s ‘Hungry’ video and features a man’s attempt at finding love with two strangers. The track comes from Paradise, the fourth album from White Lung, which was released in May of this year.
Gradin on the video:
"In a lonely world a man seeks to find love through his telephone. He discovers two women with whom he becomes obsessed with from their captivating and elegant conversations. In the end, these two women's thrilling lives and escalating partying leave the man feeling isolated and rejected again. It's basically a 90s chat line commercial on PCP.”
Today, the 2016 Polaris Music Prize will be awarded at a gala held in the ballroom of the Carlu in Toronto. White Lung will perform two songs from their Polaris shortlisted album, Paradise. Catch all the performances via live stream HERE.
“I can't decide if the breathtaking business White Lung has lately been getting up to with "hardcore" or "punk" or "alt-rock" or whatever you want to label the music they make is analogous to dipping diamond in bubblegum or coating bubblegum in an impenetrably sleek diamond surface, but I do know that it's hard as fuck and delectably, tunefully gooey at the same time and we should all have more of it. Also, I would like to visit whatever planet the guitar sounds on Paradise hail from. 'Cause that shit is ridiculous.”
– Ben Rayner, Toronto StarWhite Lung will be touring throughout Canada for the month of October before heading down to Texas for the first annual Sound on Sound Festival. They’ve also recently announced a string of dates throughout Australia.
Paradise is available now on limited edition deluxe colored vinyl, limited edition tri-glitter cassette, CD, and digital download.
