Critically acclaimed supergroup The New Pornographers debut a new video for the track “Whiteout Conditions”, shot in the West Edmonton Mall,  from their critically acclaimed album of the same name.

Of the video, director Kevan Funk explains, “Being from Alberta, the West Edmonton Mall has alway held a fascinating place in my imagination. It felt like a rich thematic backdrop being that it is this interesting monolithic figure in the city, this strange bubble that is meant to function as some sort of escape from daily reality, yet also existing as a defining space of suburban life in Edmonton. It was something that returned to mind when considering ideas for Whiteout Conditions. I wanted to tell a set of stories featuring characters who could act as conduits to explore that tension, each of them repressing some sort of tormenting emotion (guilt, shame, self-loathing) that they haven't been able to reconcile internally. The facade of the mall, with it's surreal fantasy elements, provided an effective metaphorical backdrop.”

Earlier this summer the band performed the song on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Whiteout Conditions, out now on Dine Alone Records, continues to receive critical praise.

Whiteout Conditions made its Billboard debut at #11 on the Canadian Alternative Rock chart, #12 on Modern Rock, and #27 on the Rock chart. Additionally, the album hit #6 on Billboard’s AAA Radio Chart. The band’s world tour in support of the new album continues this summer and fall, including shows with Born Ruffians in select cities.

Of writing the new record, founder and frontman A.C. Newman notes that, “At the beginning of this record, there was some thinking that we wanted it to be like a Krautrock Fifth Dimension. Of course, our mutated idea of what Krautrock is probably doesn’t sound like Krautrock at all. But we were thinking: Let’s try and rock in a different way.” Newman recently discussed the new record and the band’s 18-year career in a series of Salon Talks here, here and here.

Since their debut in 2000, The New Pornographers have released six studio albums including their most recent, Brill Bruisers, hailed as an “exuberant, synthpop-infused set” by Rolling Stone, “infectious” by Harper’s Bazaar and “the grand and purposeful hookfest that you would hope these guys would come back with” by Stereogum. Pitchfork went on to note that “with the futurist sound of Brill Bruisers, the whole band embraces a more electric version of itself—bulked-up in chrome-plated armor, firing on all cylinders, and ready to steamroll anything in its path.” The band celebrated the release with a special NPR Music First Listen Live concert at the legendary Brill Building, and performed songs from the album on both Conan and the Late Show with David Letterman.
