Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile share video for 'Continental Breakfast'
Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile have shared a music video for their new track, ‘Continental Breakfast.’
The song is taken from the pair’s upcoming collaborative album, ‘Lotta Sea Lice.’ Barnett and Vile divide up verses on the guitar-led track, reflecting on the value of their own long distance friendships.
Directed by Danny Cohen, the music video for ‘Continental Breakfast’ offers a glimpse into the personal lives of Barnett and Vile. Captured during breaks from international touring, the pair are each filmed with their loved ones. Vile spends quality time with his daughters in his native Philadelphia, taking them horseback riding and feeding them ice lollies. Barnett, based in Melbourne, relaxes at home with wife and fellow musician Jen Cloher before heading out to play basketball with her bandmates.
Cohen said of the video: “’Continental Breakfast’ was made while spending time with Courtney and Kurt in Melbourne and Philadelphia. It’s an intimate home movie into their lives and the time spent with family and friends between recording/touring. Shot on 16mm, the mini-documentary captures honest moments that show the loving and playful nature of both Courtney and Kurt. It was such a treat to experience life with Courtney and Kurt in their natural habitats. It really left me feeling like part of the family and hopefully fans can feel that too.”
‘Lotta Sea Lice’ is released on 13th October via Marathon.
