Toronto-based Laura Hermiston and producer Brian Borcherdt (AKA the dude from Holy Fuck) make up a little duo called Twist–and their new video for "Slums and Seaports" allows you to feel like you're inside of the butthole of someone's Tumblr page. Seriously, like:

META!!!

TUMBLR!!!

TUMBLR!!!

This hazey, lo-fi music would normally warrant some predictable VHS video filmed out the window of a moving car with edited light leaks and someone's backyard, which is pretty inherently lame. So it's encouraging to see a band put forth an amazingly well-done video that I could have watched for two more hours. The song itself is airy and haunting, with buzzed out guitars and a drum-machine that builds up throughout the entirety of the track.

Watch the premiere of "Slums and Seaports" below, from their upcoming EP Arrow Road.
