NYC duo WRITER (brothers James and Andy Ralph), who released their album, Brotherface, last year, followed that up with a new 7" via Nineteen98 records over the summer. One of its tracks, "IE," has just gotten the music video treatment. Shot in Southern California's Inland Empire, not too far from where the Ralph brothers grew up, it's an homage to Jim Jarmusch's classic 1980 feature Permanent Vacation. The video makes its premiere in this post and you can watch it below.
WRITER have a few local shows coming up, including Wednesday (10/2) at Mercury Lounge opening for Chicago's Twin Peaks. Tickets for that show are still available. They'll also be around for CMJ and so far they have two shows during that, both on October 18 -- one at Pianos and one at The Ho_se. No details on those -- like whether they're day or night shows -- at the moment. Stay tuned.
