WATCH THE VIDEO FOR 'TRUE THRUSH' - THE NEW SINGLE BY DAN DEACON
Dan Deacon | 18/07/12
'True Thrush' is the first single to be made available from the new Dan Deacon album, 'America'. Both to be released on 27th August 2012 on Domino Records & Publishing.
The video was co-directed by Ben O’Brien and 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.
