Following the recent release of his sophomore album, Blackout Summer, Dusted's Brian Borcherdt has debuted a stunningly poignant music video for "Dead Eyes."

Atwood Magazine premiered the short film, which touches on sorrow, beauty, humor, family and friendship, drawing cinematic inspiration from Tim & Eric, David Lynch, and our two favorite Andersons –

"I love the heart that these characters display – it's a perfect contrast to the routine funeral we are introduced to off the top,“ shared Borcherdt. “I laughed so many times out loud when I first watched the story unfold but it was the small gestures that kept me coming back. I feel so moved by the love they show their fallen comrade. For instance Claw-Hand-Man puts his hat to his heart after driving the dead body to the sea. He doesn't follow the procession but stands guard by the getaway car and sends this final heartfelt gesture. It's really touching; they loved this person so much."

Director William Wilkinson explains, "Dusted’s wistful, hypnotic song inspired us to tell a story of acceptance: sometimes we receive the greatest love and loyalty not from our own blood kin but, instead, from our closest friends.”

Atwood reports, "“Dead Eyes” is a perfect and powerful visual companion to an already meaningful song. A poignant, vivid send-off... truly feels filmic, encapsulating a majestically absurd scene with incredible detail." Watch the story unfold for yourself at the link below.
