Santa Rosa experimental rock group The Down House release new music video for “Parker Posey” from their debut album ‘Our Mess.’ Their west coast tour kicks off this week.
The Down House resides in Santa Rosa and has been a band in development for a few years. Starting with three members back in 2014 and with few EPs under their belt, the band has doubled up to six members and debuted their first full length album Our Mess earlier this year.
The music video was directed, filmed and edited by Timmy Lodhi and Jim Agius. You may have seen Lodhi’s work previously as he is also responsible for making videos for bands such as Creative Adult, State Faults, and The Vibrating Antennas. The video sets stage in a grocery store where we see the one remaining employee (Quenby Dolgushkin) parading across the store while listening to “Parker Posey”—a fun play off the name of indie art film queen Parker Posey. It’s a whimsical take on the track, which blends the eerie with airy surf jangles that sweep under lead singer Casey Colby’s heavy baritone vocals. We see members nonchalantly jamming away throughout the aisles, but ultimately we find the band playing together in a pool of balloons in the produce section as the dancing employee takes their exit. The track sounds like it was written for all the pent up romantics that are looking to ditch their day jobs and make their time count to be with the right person. It might make you want to do the same.
