For their “Interiors” video, Mirror Mirror casts Rumi Missabu, one of the last surviving members of the 60s San Francisco psychedelic drag troupe The Cockettes, as a reclusive matriarch placed in an imaginary interior. The video (directed by MM's David Riley) is shot in black & white on a set bare except for a sculptural chair and the shadowy hint of Venetian blinds. Colorful costume has been replaced with a simple black column dress designed by Lauren Devine. The focus here is on Rumi’s performance, which matches the song’s theme of living in one’s head, while somehow evoking Butoh dance, film noir and THX 1138.
“Interiors” is the first single off of Mirror Mirror’s new album of the same name, available August 16 on RVNG Intl.
