True Thrush is the first single to be made available from Dan Deacon's America album out 27th August 2012 on Domino Records (Ribbon Music publishing administered by Domino Publishing). Co-directed by Ben O’Brien and Dan Deacon (making his directorial debut) is based on a drawing game popular in the Baltimore art collective Wham City, which is in turn based on the game 'telephone'. Deacon’s concept for the video is loosely related to the lyrics, and mirrors his use of asymmetrical repetition and evolving patterns. For the video, Dan and Ben filmed a simple 13-second scene. That scene was then shown to the next team. After seeing the video that team had 1 hour to recreate it - characters, props, set, costumes, and actions - as close to exactly as possible from only their memory. With each new team the scene evolves. The energy begins to amplify and the chaos increases due to the distorting tendency of memory. The beauty of the video is in the completed arc, an arc that only exists because each team was blind to it. The cast of the video is made up of members of WhamCity, Dan Deacon Ensemble, Ed Schrader’s Music Beat,FutureIslands, Red Room Collective, Copycat Theater, Effervescent Dance Collective, Showbeast, Annex Theater, Nuclear Power Pants, FlucT, BXDC, Bloody Panda, Foot Talk, Important Comics, the Baltimore Museum of Art, and various icons of the legendary Baltimore Arts Community. We insist that you must catch this genius live...
