The New Pornographers have released a new video for “Falling Down The Stairs Of Your Smile.”
“I think it has that element of how do you deal with the ideas of love and happiness in this world right now? When current events are stressful, that makes a stress on people’s relationships,” frontman A.C. Newman explains in a statment. “And you’re trying to figure out how to be happy in this loving relationship in this world that seems ugly at every turn, which is not as easy as it seems.”
The accompanying clip is beautifully coloured and opens with a woman waiting at a bus stop before being yanked into a chain of peculiar choreography that leads to rolling down a hill, marching in a warehouse, and sitting at a bare dinner table.
Watch the video for “Falling Down The Stairs Of Your Smile” below.
The New Pornographers’ forthcoming album Falling Down The Stairs Of Your Smile is set for release on September 27th.
