"There is an amazing haunting and yearning quality to all the Handsome Furs songs, but they’re hopeful and full of heart at the same time. Dan Boeckner’s voice, to me, is full of mourn and yearning for freedom.
Now what do we do in a ruined world? We can fuck and dance, but what do we do when we’re all danced and fucked out? Hold onto each other! Maybe that’s how we can start to save ourselves.
I think the record is dripping in empathy and questioning freedom and feeling and I hope I captured some of that in the video. I wanted it to feel narrative but work with the logic of a dream.
We’re a nation of prudes conversely walled in pornography. I wanted to make the diametric opposite of porn. What is that? Intimacy. I think. Real feeling. We live in a world where that seems transgressive now. That’s really, ultimately, what this video and record is about to me. That’s fucked. Let’s fuck." @skotcof
