Videos for a Lazy Sunday: All Boy/All Girl’s ‘Lion’

The video for All Boy/All Girl‘s ‘Lion’ takes a much more serene approach than the their last vid, ‘Glitter’ from their current release Trophy, out now on Grind Select.

Directed by Sara Montironi, the clip explores the theme of travelling and the inevitable changes that it brings.

“The “Lion” video is about traveling. Finding the means, in order to reach that place. The unconscious place. When it has been reached, it isn’t how you expected it to be. And at the end of the travel, unwittingly you’ve changed,” Montironi said in a statement.

The band added the song is about,”a pursuit of greatness, and how that pursuit can be alienating. The lion stands in as a metaphor for the power hungry politician or the greedy wall street banker, who finds that the view from the top is a lonely one. The director, Sara Montironi, chose to depict a different type of protagonist, whose journey is equally as isolating and self-motivated.”

Videos for a Lazy Sunday: All Boy/All Girl’s ‘Glitter’

The video for All Boy/All Girls ‘Glitter’ is a hyper-violent tribute to game shows that shares similarities with the movies of Wes Anderson.

The track can be found on their current release Trophy, out now on Grind Select.

It grows more and more unsettling as the video progresses.

The band also shared their Trophy Smasher game, which lets the player blow off steam by smashing a room full of trophies.

The Lukasz Pytlik-directed video captures the song’s theme about achieving a delusional state of bliss despite being surrounded by unpleasantness. The “contestants” in the video have a single-minded obsession with becoming famous and the increasingly gruesome game show.

03/16 – New York, NY @ The Studio at Webster Hall w/ Emanuel & The Fear, Novelty Daughter [EP Release Show]
