Nothing is more fitting from a Los Angeles trio that self-describes itself as “West Coast Love Fuzz” and “Flower Punk” than a music video that looks like it came straight out of the ‘80s, and today we are excited to premiere Cotillon’s “Talk To Her,” off the band’s upcoming White Roses EP.
Directed by David Herrera, who has also created videos for bands like Andrew Bird, Diplo and The Killers, the visual counterpart for the three-piece’s latest single looks like it could have been cut scenes out of 1983’s Valley Girl. The clip begins with a rebellious teenager adorned in high-topped Chucks and a leather jacket smoking a cigarette outside a high school. As Cotillon’s surf-tinged guitars swell, the principal pops out from behind the bushes, on a mission to bust our main character.
He, of course, gets away, and as the sparkling guitars finally burst the video cuts to a poolside house party. As the valley girls stare at our Romeo, noses scrunched in disgust, one particular blonde sends him a flirty smile while vocalist Jordan Corso admits, “Pick up these puzzle pieces all over the ground / I gotta make the most of everyone that I’ve found / I try to tell me friends, but they can’t understand / That she’s the only missing piece, piece I need.”
Immediately after, our rebel gets pounded by a group of jocks and kicked out of the party. But does he get the girl in the end? That’s something you’ll have to find out for yourself.
