Watch Here We Go Magic’s Fluttery ‘How Do I Know’ Clip
From the Brooklyn outfit's forthcoming, Nigel Godrich-produced full-length, 'A Different Ship'
An Oreo-eating man with a vest and cargo shorts must choose between his statuesque, imperious, wheelchair-bound wife and a cheerful, dancing android in the video for Here We Go Magic’s “How Do I Know.” From the Brooklyn band’s May 8 album A Different Ship, the song is a fluttery, new-wave pop reflection on that feeling when you’re not totally sure yet whether or not you’re in love. The video, directed by Sean Pecknold (brother of Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold), puts an endearing twist on that theme with the addition of the cyber-woman, portrayed by dancer Jane Paik a.k.a. Janet Pants. Watching this sunny, Southwestern-tinged video, an answer comes to mind: You just know.
