Parquet Courts Pay Homage to Retro Films in “Black and White” Music Video

Parquet Courts Black and white

Ridgewood lo-fi punk rockers Parquet Courts drop their new album, Sunbathing Animal, today on What’s Your Rupture? / Mom+Pop. To celebrate its release, they’ve shared a new video for “Black and White.”

The video, directed by Austin Brown and Melbourne-based artist Johann Rashid, blends together multiple reels of black and white film recorded in the band’s neighborhood of Ridgewood, Queens, New York (that’s the actual street in Bed Stuy that frontman Andrew Savage lives on). The two directors took inspiration from the experimental films of William Burroughs and Brion Gysin, working in the depth and complexity of personal stories encountered on a short stroll in the city.
