Charlotte Cornfield has shared a new song, ‘Partner in Crime’, alongside a Wes Anderson-inspired music video. The track is taken from the Toronto songwriter’s upcoming album, Highs in the Minuses. Check out the clip, directed by Charlotte’s brother Joe, below.
“In the Partner in Crime music video, Charlotte is reunited with an old friend, and the pair embark on a mission to get the old band back together,” Joe Cornfield explained in a statement. “In an homage to Bottle Rocket, Charlotte and her band don yellow jumpsuits and take off in a VW bus to execute a daring musical ‘heist.’”
Charlotte added: “My brother and I grew up watching Wes Anderson movies. They were a huge part of our childhood and adolescence, and I feel like they’ve seeped into our DNA at this point — the colours, the outfits, the humour. When I sent Joe this song and he came back with this idea, it was a no-brainer that we’d do it. He made it all happen: the van, the jumpsuits, the whole thing. Tara Kannangara, Steven Foster and Sam Gleason came with us on the journey and fully embraced the concept.”
