VIDEO PREMIERE: The Charm Offensive – “Alive and Divided”

Thursday 21st, September 2017 / 08:45

By Willem Thomas

VANCOUVER – Starting with the drop of the music video for “Alive and Divided”, the next two weeks for Hatch Benedict and Trish Kelly, aka local husband and wife synth-pop duo The Charm Offensive, should keep them quite occupied. Following the group’s first show Saturday, Sept. 23 at the Fox Cabaret, their debut EP Polite Mouth // Honest Hands arrives Oct. 11.

The video, directed by Shannon Hemmett of Actors, is a cataclysmic exploration of the connection between life and death. Switching between ritualistic scenes of a human skull in a field and explosions, microscopic biological processes, and other chaotic imagery, the shots are tightly edited to resemble something like extra b-roll footage from a Terrance Malick film meets a pagan coming-of-age party. You’ll want to dance, but also hug your dog after.

The song itself is a massive slice of dark ’80s synthpop, sounding like if A Flock of Seagulls walked into a Killing Joke show and Billy Idol was the bartender. Expect to be charmed by The Charm Offensive.

RSVP to the show on Sept. 23 here
