Dreamy duo Beverly has shared a clip for “South Collins,” a track from their forthcoming full-length The Blue Swell. Here’s what frontwoman Drew Citron had to say about the video, which she likens to The Shining and Twin Peaks:

“I originally wrote the song “South Collins” like a noir film script, the music and lyrics describe a murder at an art deco hotel. One weekend after a friend’s wedding in the Catskills, I came across the perfect setting of the Colonial Inn. The place definitely had a surreal and creepy vibe, yet the owner Steve was amazing. He was totally down to let me and 20 of my friends take over the hotel for a weekend, and we ended up casting him as the older bartender.

The idea behind the video is that I walk into a hotel, and the sight of me triggers the bartender’s flashbacks to a nightclub singer he met decades before at the same hotel. A wild and progressively sinister party ensues. Years later he is still haunted by it - what happened that night? Director Jim Larson created the perfect look of an eerie Twin Peaks or The Shining-like world, without getting too overtly into ghost stories and the supernatural.”
