Summer Twins – “Demons”

| |

We just featured this group in our October Bandcamp piece today but thought the video also deserved your attention. The sister-fronted LA four-piece just released their sophomore LP, Limbo via Burger Records.

Singer/guitarist Chelsea Brown had this to say about the video: “Everyone has their own ‘demons’ – they’re the little voices in the back of your mind that make you doubt yourself and tell you not to take risks. They can be vicious – they’ll lure you in and beckon you back to safety. If you fall into their trap you become victim, allowing your demons to stunt your potential; but if you can find the courage to face them and explore that darker side of your mind that you’d often rather ignore, you might just have a breakthrough and discover artistic bliss. In a way these demons are the catalyst in making your vision come to life – they may just put you through hell first.”

For the video Summer Twins wanted to portray their demons in a strange alternate “Limbo” world. They took inspiration from the 1966 Czechoslovak film Sedmikr├ísky (or “Daisies”) and worked with director Owen Swchartzbard to create the story. All of the props were handmade with the help of friends and they shot the video on a hot day at the dry river bottom in their hometown of Riverside.
