The New Pornographers Get Creepy in Cuba for ‘Champions of Red Wine’ Video
Directors Cudmore + Leblanc handle the latest 'Brill Bruisers' clip
The New Pornographers latest LP, Brill Bruisers, came out back in August of last year, but today they’ve shared a video for one of that record’s Neko Case-led cuts “Champions of Red Wine.” Director duo Leblanc + Cudmore — who also handled the band’s “Dancehall Domine” visual — decided to shoot the clip on location in Cuba, where a leering man wanders through beaches and peep shows. The directors acknowledge nods to the classic Wim Wenders film Paris, Texas, but stripped of his voice the crises of the central character here only get creepier. You can watch it up below.
