HAND DRAWN DRACULA // NXNE 2013
5 Year Anniversary Showcase!
Saturday, June 15, 2013
1197 Dundas St. W.
(Reunited performing Hot New Spirits)
DUSTED have a new video for “Bruises” off their critically acclaimed album Total Dust. The shimmering flares of sunlight and soft focus of the video pairs perfectly with Dusted’s fuzzed out guitars and haunting vocals. Director Benjamin Portas, a friend and collaborator of Hand Drawn Dracula (Beliefs’ “Lilly” and “Carousel” videos) and Production Assistant Erica Beyea shot the video in remote Australia, taking advantage of their surroundings to craft a beautiful visual interpretation of the song.
Total Dust was described as a “dewy lo-fi pop ramble, with sweetly multi-tracked vocals, cavernous layers of melancholy guitar strums, and galloping, off-kilter percussion” by Spin Magazine. Total Dust is available on limited maroon-coloured vinyl.

DUSTED releases a music video for “There Somehow”, collaborating with Canadian Director Scott Cudmore. The song, which pairs BRIAN BORCHERDT‘s haunting vocals with a simple guitar, hints at frustration in communication. Cudmore’s filmic take is equally vexed, showing a girl releasing all through a silent scream. It was premiered today via STEREOGUM.
