New video – White Lung, ‘Below’

White Lung has just released a video for their song “Below”. It’s the third single, following “Hungry” and “Kiss Me When I Bleed”, off the Vancouver band’s third album, Paradise. The album is scheduled for release May 6.

As Stereogram notes, the song “i unlike anything that White Lung has ever done before.”

Richard Bates Jr. directed the video, which features the band playing to an almost-empty theatre save for a few Marilyn Monroe impersonators, one of whom is model AnnaLynne McCord.

“I needed to try to do a ballad about glamorous women,” vocalist Mish Barber-Way recently said of the song. “It’s based on a quote by Camille Paglia from an interview she did a few years ago in Toronto. ‘Beauty fades. Beauty is transient. That is why we value it,’ she said. ‘Feminism’s failure to acknowledge that beauty is a value in itself, that even if a woman manages to achieve it for a particular moment, she has contributed something to the culture.‘ It’s a song about the preservation of glamour and beauty.”
