Michael C. Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Lazarus), Peter Yanowitz (The Wallflowers, Morningwood) and Matt Katz-Bohen’s (Blondie, Cyndi Lauper) avant-indie trio Princess Goes To The Butterfly Museum have released the official video for “Vicious” today. CLICK HERE to watch, and HERE to read the first look from Alternative Press. The guerilla-style video was shot March 5th on the NYC subway by director Samantha Scaffidi using 16mm film — just days before New York imposed stay-at-home orders in response to the pandemic.
“Nobody knew what was coming,” said Peter Yanowitz. “The idea of lockdown and social distancing wasn’t even a thought, and nobody was in a mask. Of course, on March 13th, everything changed in New York City, and we could have never made that video after that without being the biggest assholes around. And in that sense, we feel really lucky. Looking at it now fills me with a lot of emotions and some melancholy. I miss that NYC so much.”
