As a lovely Friday treat, the globe saw the release of the video for the duo’s Love You to Death cut “BWU.” In the clip, Sara Quin treks about town armed with an empty ring box and a willingness to propose. The rejections come at a steady clip, but no need to get too upset. There’s a cheery ending to the promo, and one that pairs nicely with the track’s marriage is not mandatory message.
“I was happy when the Supreme Court ruling legalized same sex marriage in the U.S.A.,” shared Sara Quin via email correspondence with Entertainment Weekly about the song. “But I was also relieved that I could finally ‘come out’ as a person who actively dislikes the institution—specifically the assumption that by not participating in the ritual you are a deviant or unlikely to share the same common values as someone who does.”
Although it didn’t appear to be addressed in Sara’s chat with EW, this video boasts some tasteful sparkler action. Always a nice touch to see in a summer music video release.
We have the “BWU” video, which was directed by Carnivàle vet Clea DuVall, located at the top of the page for your viewing/listening/non-proposing pleasure.
