Toronto’s Glutenhead have shared a new video for “Naked in Toronto.”
“Naked in Toronto,” which features Fucked Up’s Jonah Falco on trumpet, comes packed with an ominous instrumental and captivating, wailing vocals. The perfectly peculiar accompanying clip follows the band biking through the streets of Toronto, interspersed with shots of them hanging lzundry in a yard, cooking food, and breaking art over their heads.
“This project was truly a labour of love,” frontman Benjamin Shapiro explains. “Created over a year and a half period from 2019-2021, the goal of the video was to capture what our lives felt like living in Toronto during that time, our early 20s. Shot, directed and edited by Toronto filmmaker/photographer Bradley Golding, the video hopefully serves as a time capsule, a window, an attempt to bottle the wild-eyed energy of our friends during that special time in our lives (which got a lot more meaningful once COVID shook things up). It became the product of community collaboration, with many of the furiously creative people in the Toronto art scene that we spent our pre-pandemic days with contributing in some way.”
