Deerhunter Dress Up 'Back to the Middle' Video in Retro Drag

British actor Durassie Kiangangu stars in sparkly 'Monomania' clip

Dan Reilly

Deerhunter's crackling, beautifully abrasive "Back to the Middle" puts a twist on retro indie-rock, and now the Monomania cut has an equally inventive video. British actor Durassie Kiangangu, dressed in '60s girl-group garb, dances in shimmering black and white, shaking that shiny slip while singing along to Bradford Cox's pained vocals. The simple shots make for a captivating visual, with a colorful surprise coming midway through.
