Broken Social Scene came back on.. the, erm scene, not so long ago and have since fired off a few shots that they are not going away again for a little while. Following ‘Halfway Home’ the band have now released ‘Vanity Pail Kids’ complete with a kicky new video as well.
The video features an aspiring pop star – played by a urinal – making its way across the country trying everything it can to be star. Acknowledging its limitations it still pursues its dream. Inspirational really.
Flustered and stifled the urinal sees his dreams somewhat crushed. Kevin Drew, from the band directed it and frankly it is spellbinding. OK, it’s no Capote but it is a good video for a very good track.
