Dusted “Bruises” (Video)

DUSTED have a new video for “Bruises” off their critically acclaimed album Total Dust. The shimmering flares of sunlight and soft focus of the video pairs perfectly with Dusted’s fuzzed out guitars and haunting vocals. Director Benjamin Portas, a friend and collaborator of Hand Drawn Dracula (Beliefs’ “Lilly” and “Carousel” videos) and Production Assistant Erica Beyea shot the video in remote Australia, taking advantage of their surroundings to craft a beautiful visual interpretation of the song.

Total Dust was described as a “dewy lo-fi pop ramble, with sweetly multi-tracked vocals, cavernous layers of melancholy guitar strums, and galloping, off-kilter percussion” by Spin Magazine. Total Dust is available on limited maroon-coloured LP (only a few copies left) and CD in our HDD on-line store.

DUSTED also release a video stream of “In Yr Skull”, originally available at CMJ as an extremely limited edition flexidisc split with METZ.

Both tracks were recorded early in the genesis of DUSTED and feature HOLY FUCK as the backing band. In this incarnation of Dusted are BRIAN BORCHERDT on vocals and guitar, Brad Kilpatrick on drums, Matt McQuaid on bass and Graham Walsh also on guitar. Anna Edwards provides background vocals on “No Trouble”.

Dusted ‘There Somehow’ Video

DUSTED releases a music video for “There Somehow”, collaborating with Canadian Director Scott Cudmore. The song, which pairs BRIAN BORCHERDT‘s haunting vocals with a simple guitar, hints at frustration in communication. Cudmore’s filmic take is equally vexed, showing a girl releasing all through a silent scream. It was premiered today via Stereogum.

Director Scott Cudmore had this to say about the new music video:
“Brian sent me the Dusted record last year and I immediately fell in love with it. It stayed in my car for almost the entire year. Something about the sounds and textures on that record, I guess they made me think that they could complement images and sounds of my own. The subject matter of ‘There Somehow’ and the short length of it really made sense with this material. It’s a different kind of project – it’s not a music video for a ‘single’ but more of a little film collaboration between two existing works.”
