Land of Talk shares new single / video ‘Sitcom’
The track is from their forthcoming new album Performances, due out this Friday via Saddle Creek.
Land of Talk has released their third single from their upcoming new album. Entitled ‘Sitcom,’ the track follows previous singles ‘Pwintiques’ and ‘Your Beautiful Self.’
“A lot of my love of music is just from long car rides with my dad listening to Christopher Cross, Fine Young Cannibals, and Whitney Houston. He’s not a musician but I feel like I’m almost having a conversation with my dad through a lot of my records,” explains Lizzie Powell, the creative force behind Land of Talk. “Recently, I got into a really big Christopher Cross phase. On this song, I thought I could try to write like that. I was also watching a lot of Family Ties and older sitcoms. The keys part kind of evoked that classic TV intro from the ‘70s and ‘80s.”
Of the video, Espino-Trudel explains:
“I wanted ‘Sitcom’ to be a cross between a blasé ‘90s sitcom and Jeanne Dielman peeling carrots in the kitchen. Hailey Guzik crafted a custom sign meant to mimic an applause sign found on a live studio set – except the sign taunts, ‘figure it out,’ lyrics from the song itself. I wanted to tell a story of multiple alternate universes existing within the mundanity of life. We find Lizzie contained by the television, a force trapped in an ethereal world, while comedian Eve Parker Finley slowly spots clues of a world beyond (at other times blithely missing it). Meanwhile, Hanako Hoshimi-Caines’s cathartic and experimental movement brings to the surface the childhood tantrum simmering in us all.”
‘Sitcom’ is out now. Performances is out this Friday via Saddle Creek.
