Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Peaches’ ‘Close Up’ (Featuring Kim Gordon)

Peaches has unveiled the video for ‘Close Up’ featuring Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth.

The track is taken from her forthcoming new album Rub, out on September 25 on I U She Music via Fontana North.

The video for ‘Close Up’ finds Peaches entering the world of Mexican Luchadores with Gordon as her coach. She takes on a series of female wrestlers and luchadores including Cassandro and Dirty Sanchez. The Vice Cooler-directed video was shot in LA.

“I’m fascinated by Lucha VaVOOM, the work they do, and by classic bro movies like Rocky; the relationships between coach and student and between men and their sports. For ‘Close Up,’ I wanted to combine the two, adding some little twists,” Peaches said in a statement.
