July Talk has revealed their latest, masterful video for their new single “Beck + Call (feat. Tanya Tagaq).”
The video was made with the band’s longtime collaborator and director, Jared Raab, in addition to theatre creators Norah Sadava and Amy Nostbakken, who co-founded Toronto’s multi-disciplinary performance company Quote Unquote Collective.
When discussing the inspiration for the video, Peter Dreimanis and Leah Fay said, “we set out to create a movement piece that explored the song’s themes regarding the common unbalance of power dynamics in modern relationships.” They continued, “the main thesis in the song culminates when we scream, ‘blind love in dark bedrooms, find love within confusion.’ We hope the video illustrates the frustration born out of existing underneath your lover’s thumb.”
