cleopatrick have shared the video for their latest single “FAMILY VAN.” The track is off the band’s forthcoming highly anticipated debut album BUMMER, due for release June 4 via their own label Nowhere Special Recordings (via The Orchard / Thirty Tigers). Pre-Order Here.
The video for ‘FAMILY VAN’ is a tribute to the cleopatrick’s minivan Vannah Montana, and reflects the track’s dark, brooding and cathartic sonic palette. Speaking about the video, which was filmed in a single shot, frontman Luke explains “Vannah Montana is Ian’s mini-van we’ve spent the last three years touring North America in. This video was conceptualized by us, and shot and directed by Boy Wonder. We filmed it in the parking lot of our rundown hometown mall in the middle of the night. We didn’t have a permit to film there, and almost didn’t finish the video because someone called the cops on us after seeing the strobe lights from the road – but in a classic small town twist of fate, the officer that rolled up to kick us out happened to have played hockey as a child with one of our friends in the video, so he let us finish filming. This was our last take.”
