Interview Magazine premieres new Window Twins video and Interview!
While Tim Cohen is probably best known for fronting The Fresh & Onlys, and Jon Bernson for the experimental pop trio Exray’s, Wish mixes lo-fi electronics with psychedelic folk for something weirder and harder to pin down than either one. Below, you can check out our premiere of the infectious dark-pop track “The Sky Is Black,” along with its accompanying video from Fabien le Gourrierec, who assembled the clip from a short by Australian director Tracey Moffat called Nice Coloured Girls. Says le Gourrierec:
“Moffat is Aboriginal, and through this movie Moffatt shows aboriginal women as powerful and aware of their own subjugation. When I edited the video for Window Twins, I cut and kept the artsy form of the movie—the painting scenes, the contemplative strolling in the streets… I felt like they work perfectly with the song. There is no hidden message, just some perfect images for this particular voice and these swinging arrangements.”
Also below, check out Interview’s conversation with Bernson, who talked about how SF compares to NYC, how the scene has changed, and what it’s like working with Tim. As is inevitable with Bay Area-centric interviews, Mexican food becomes involved.
