TOURIST COMPANY RELEASE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR FRACTURED STATE
PREMIERES TODAY ON EXCLAIM!
NEW ALBUM COMING IN 2020
BRITISH COLUMBIA TOUR BEGINS SEPTEMBER 14 IN VANCOUVER
Toronto, ON – September 5, 2019 – Today, Vancouver alt-rock outfit, Tourist Company, share the official video for their latest single, Fractured State. Premiering at Exclaim!, the emotive and anthemic song that was partially inspired by the riots in Charlottesville, VA in 2017, translates into a chaotic video scene the duo is seen playing amongst. Watch the video here.
The video for Fractured State was directed by Sterling Larose and the parallels he envisioned and brought to life between the lyrics’ meaning and the chaotic stage scene are bang-on. “This song was a gut response to a tragic time and the music video follows the same pattern. It’s about a world in disarray and we love the way Sterling translated that idea visually,” says the group. “The ordinary suburban setting is turned upside down in a frenetic fashion and it puts us in the driver’s seat of dealing with chaos through the song itself. I felt like there was something cathartic about having to physically play the song over and over again in that setting, it reminded me that things can be chaotic but that won’t always be the case.”
Tourist Company released their debut album, Apollo, to critical acclaim in 2016 and toured the release relentlessly across their home country and internationally. The duo – comprised of singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Taylor Swindells, and drummer, Brenon Perry – have steadily built a musical reputation that is impressing critics and winning fans worldwide. With a sound that seamlessly blends the electronic and the organic, they have carved out a sound that is defiantly all their own; with orchestral elements that swell into a sea of synths, propelled along by rhythms that combine experimental with progressive.
