PSYCHO (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO) – THE SHINING TWINS

PSYCHO (Official Music Video) – The Shining Twins from Amber B Dianda on Vimeo.

PSYCHO MUSIC VIDEO PRESS RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Amber B Dianda presents the official music video for “Psycho” by The Shining Twins. Watch the punk duet perform their hit song on stage, while a few friends crash the party.

ABOUT THE MUSIC VIDEO:
Created by Amber B Dianda, the music video was inspired when a box of socks appeared at her front door courtesy of Stance socks. WithThe Shining Twins playing in her head, rather than putting the socks on her feet, Amber was inspired to make sock puppets instead… And so a music video was conceived.

Hand-sewn by Amber, the puppets were created to caricaturize Alex Weiss and Marisa Kreiss, aka The Shining Twins. But no band is complete without groupies to dance, drink, and run-a-muck. So when the stage was set, the band of merry pranksters joined in for the fun.

ABOUT THE SHINING TWINS:
The Shining Twins is an all-girl punk duet, starring Alex Weiss and Marisa Kreiss. “Pyscho” was one of the first songs they ever wrote and recorded on “Cum Play With Us” which was their inaugural album. The song recorded by heartthrob, Loren “Ted” Humphrey (Guards) at his studio in Bushwick, NY, with Alex on Bass and Marisa on drums. Both girls lend their voice on the raw and sinister lyrics about failed relationships, and losing your grip on reality.

AB x JAPANTHER

Hello friends and family,
I wanted to share my latest collaboration… A music video for the song “Come Back Home” by JapantherVice Magazine and noisey.com have exclusively released the music video, which can be viewed below.

Japanther is a band / art project, established by Matt Reilly and Ian Vanek. Based in Brooklyn, NY, the band has been described as, “Super hard, incredibly fast and overall inspiring” by Thrasher Magazine. Their latest album Beets, Limes and Rice, is a celebration of ten years in the underground and an ultra-contemporary meditation on “catharsis and being in love in a time of darkness.”

 

In a homage to Beau Velasco, Japanther wrote the song, “Come Back Home”. Beau was a very special creature; compassionate, full of love, crazy and creative as hell. I met him when I was only 17 years old, and consider him a beloved friend to this day. As long as I knew him, he struggled with anxiety and depression, and three years ago, sadly, he lost that fight. The song spoke directly to our heart, and so, Kirk and I were inspired to create a music video.

 

The video is created with the stop-motion style. Painstakingly, each frame is cut out of paper and shot, then moved and shot again until it resembles a moving image, like vintage cartoons. It took over 2000 frames to create the music video, and was edited by the handsome Kirk Dianda.
