Amen Dunes Unveils Video for New Song ‘Boys’

    Amen Dunes has released a new song, ‘Boys’, the second preview of his upcoming album Death Jokes. Following lead single ‘Purple Land’, the track comes with a video directed by Steven Brahms and single art by the late photographer Ross McDonnell, which is also featured on the album’s back cover. Check it out below.

    Speaking about the track, Damon McMahon explained: “‘Boys’ is another interstitial character portrait, this time about outcasts, ‘bad kids,’ and seeing things from their side: ‘Everything you’ve done, it’s been done to you too.’”

    Of the single art, McMahon added: “I fell in love with Ross’ photos of boys in Ireland while making Death Jokes and he was generous enough to let me use this picture. The image felt tragic and humorous at the same time, much like these songs. Ross was a bold, adventurous, and wild artist: the kind I aspire to be. Just as this album was close to being finished, Ross tragically passed away swimming in the Atlantic. He was 43. Rest in Peace.”

    “We only had one shot to destroy the room,” Brahms said of the video. “The guys in the video gave us such an authentic look and flow. Everyone on the crew was buzzing after the shoot and we knew we had something special. Destruction can be very cathartic.”
