On the eve of Palehound’s UK release of Dry Food on Heavenly Records (March 4), the band has released a new music video for “Molly”. Directed by Lara Jean Gallagher and Brian Kinkley, the video follows the surreal (and slightly tragic) story of EggGuy, and the woman who eventually eats him. The video debuted on Stereogum today.
“EggGuy was concocted during a late morning brunch mishap,” explains the directing duo. “We wanted to explore the frailty of life, what it means to have consciousness, and how much we could care about a pair of eyeballs. “Molly” has just the right amount of weird sweetness to make this all seem really fun.”
Fronted by 21-year-old songwriter and guitar mastermind, Ellen Kempner, Palehound released their debut album, Dry Food, the US last summer.
Since the album release last August, the band has toured virtually non-stop with Torres, Bully, Mitski, PWRBTTM and a variety of other bands, developing a ferocious live set in the process. They are currently in the midst of their first tour of the UK and Europe, and will hit the road again in May for their first headline tour of the East Coast.
