Protomartyr Lead an Interpretive Dance Revolution in ‘Want Remover’ Video

The proto-punk act's 'Under Color of Official Right' is out now on Hardly Art

Protomartyr have unveiled a brand-new video for “Want Remover” (from last year’s Under Color of Official Right). Directed by Hanly Banks, the clip depicts a group of interpretive dancers twisting and turning it out on the floor. 

Speaking to Brooklyn Vegan, Banks says of the visuals: 

The video for “Want Remover” was inspired by (and in-turn inspired) the raw soul power of ecstatic dance. We got a bunch of strangers together — some who had danced before and some who had not — and played music with very little interference or specific direction to guide them. It was the first Saturday morning of 2015, and the dance felt like a sort of ritual purifying act to ring in the new year in a very heartfelt and authentic way.
