Parquet Courts - Wide Awake (Official Video):

The video picks up where ”Wide Awake“ left off, focusing on band member Austin Brown as he contemplatively walks the streets and lots of New Orleans. ”It’s a song about commitment to yourself for better or worse,“ says Brown. As with ”Wide Awake,“ Brother Willis directed ”Mardi Gras Beads“ during Mardi Gras. 

”Mardi Gras Beads“ is taken from the band’s new album ’Wide Awake!’, out 18th May and available to pre-order HERE on deluxe vinyl*, standard vinyl, CD and MP3. T-shirts and scarves designed by Parquet Courts are also available exclusively from the Rough Trade Records webstore. *deluxe vinyl includes a 16-page double booklet of art and illustration by the band’s Grammy-nominated artist A. Savage - available from the Rough Trade Records webstore other relatailers.
