In addition to playing this year’s CMJ Music Marathon, Brooklyn’s Talk Normal will be releasing its sophomore LP Sunshine on October 23. In honor of this upcoming event, the band has released the music video for the record’s stark single “Cover,” and it’s anything but normal.
 
Directed by Celine Danhier and edited by Vanessa Roworth, the video captures the duo in black-and-white film, wearing solemn facial expressions while caked in heavy lipstick and eye shadow. Circular and rectangular shapes scatter across the screen as the pair lean on each other and stare aimlessly off into the distance. The style of the video may seem familiar, as Danhier and Roworth collaborated together on the production of Blank City. Watch the video and check out the band’s upcoming tour dates, below.
