Paper Magazine just debuted Misfit Mod’s new video for “Cars”! Hugs!! Big shout-out and thanks also to the wonderful and talented director, Ed Lust!
New Zealand-raised, London-based Sarah Kelleher worked as a gallery curator and audio engineer before adopting the name Misfit Mod and focusing on her own music. Last week, she released Islands & Islands, her first album of atmospheric synth-pop, on Brooklyn label Stars & Letters. In this video for the song “Cars,” a stiletto-wearing streetwalker stumbles through a city at night; kaleidoscopic camera tricks disorient the viewer. The song is airy and sparse, with a loop of Kelleher’s voice and a basic drumbeat as the only accompaniment.
