Copenhagen post-punk outfit Communions’ self-titled EP is one of the best things to come out so far this summer, full of gritty melodies and sharp guitar lines. Now they’ve brought out a video for the EP’s slick opener, ‘Forget It’s A Dream’.
The video eschews conventional narrative and instead prefers to deal in brief impressions and teenage snapshots set in a sports ground, shot mostly in austere black and white. It’s a stylish accompaniment to the song, perfectly matching its themes of angst and longing. Director Nikolaj Møller says “The video is about the special time and years around being a teenager growing up and becoming an adult. Around the innocent years with the newly discovered sexual attraction and exploration”.
The Communions EP is out now on Tough Love Records, and you can catch the band play London’s Electrowerkz on September 9th.
