boygenius Share Animated Video for "Cool About It"
Published Sep 20, 2023Continuing to roll out visuals behind this year's the record, 2023 Exclaim! cover stars boygenius have now shared an accompanying clip for the album's "Cool About It."
Animated and directed by Lauren Tsai, the cool-coloured clip is centred on a relationship between a dog and its toy in a poetic exploration of the threads which bind us together.
Calling "Cool About It" a "melancholic and piercing song that puts words to feelings often unexplained," director Tsai shared in a release, "It is an absolute dream to collaborate with the genius that is boygenius. I made animated videos on YouTube when I was 11 and I cannot imagine something I'd lose my mind over more if I could go back in time and tell myself. I will always be grateful to the band for the many ways in which their work has affected my life."
The video for "Cool About It" follows the supergroup of Lucy Dacus, Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker's previously released, self-directed video for "Not Strong Enough," and the film, helmed by Kristen Stewart.
