Brooklyn trio, the Vandelles have released a flirty new video this morning for “Miles Away,” the second video from their new album, Strange Girls Don’t Cry. The video is a whimsical piece featuring a redheaded lolita dancing around in various outfits as she spends her day vinyl shopping, eating pizza and smoking. The video starts bright and cheery but as the story runs through, it transitions to an almost dark end.
The Vandelles’ new album Strange Girls Don’t Cry is a lusty psychedelic garage record covered in blankets of fuzzy noir and throbbing reverb. Influenced by the sounds of the Cramps, Suicide and X — the trio summon the darker and grimier side of 60s garage, yet their music rolls with a glistening barrel of surf rock.
