Premiere: Dumb – “Party Whip”

Last month Vancouver band Dumb released Seeing Green – an energetic batch of post-punk tracks – via Mint Records. Now the band has unveiled a wobbly and surrealist western style video for the album’s track “Party Whip.”

Director Katayoon Yousefbigloo explains the premise of the video: “The video follows four unlucky gamblers as they lose the same game three times. They meet artists, musicians, movie stars and other very important people, whose brilliance, wit, and talent blind them into playing their hands backwards to the same result.  A poker face is only effective if you trick yourself first.”
