When VÉRITÉ played Brighton Music Hall a few weeks back, we made sure to get to the Allston club early to catch the opening set from Tigertown. The Australian electronic-pop quartet released one of our favorite tracks of 2017 with the anthemic single “Warriors,” and BMH absolutely lit up when they played it live.
Today (September 7), “Warriors” gets the video treatment, and the Imogen Grist-directed clip can be viewed below. It captures the raw energy and enthusiasm of the track, which examines the divide between fantasy and reality through themes of love and introspection.
“When Imogen came to us with the idea for the video, we loved that it focused on the deeper meaning of the song,” says Tigertown in a press release. “We imagined fireworks and dancing when we wrote it, but there are also some darker emotions at the song’s core. We feel the video captures both sides beautifully. We also got very good at jumping backwards onto safety mats.”
Once Tigertown wrap up their tour with VÉRITÉ later this month, they connect with Great Good Fine Ok for additional North American dates come November. There’s no Boston date currently on the itinerary, but if we make enough noise, they might swing back our way very soon.
