Presenting the music video for Casket Girls’ track Sleepwalking, shot and edited by Kevin Canavan entirely on a broken VHS camcorder. The Casket Girls are a new three-piece band hailing from Savannah, GA. Comprised of Ryan Graveface (Black Moth Super Rainbow, The Marshmallow Ghosts, Dreamend) who wrote and played all the song structures, and newcomers, Elsa and Phaedra Greene, who wrote and performed all of the vocals. On Sleepwalking, the band’s first release, the unique collaboration bears to be more than the sum of its parts – as the girls’ haunting and upbeat pop sensibility imbues Ryan’s inspired instrumental musings with such a sense of purpose that you must wonder how one could exist without the other. But, The Casket Girls happened – as most things do – by accident. Ryan was visiting his future home, and in walking through one of the city’s 22 squares, he happened upon two girls playing autoharp and singing bizarre songs. He watched from afar, eventually approaching them with the idea for the band. Ryan had been (and still is) obsessed with the Shangri-Las, and the sisters personified his desire of a far darker and more complex version of the 60s group. See music video after the jump.

It is a well known fact that the majority of images we consume are created by men, and too often is feminism an easy target for commodification in the wider context of contemporary culture. SHOWstudio has decided to examine this ‘self-other’ relationship and curate an exhibition about sex, as seen exclusively from a female perspective. The exhibition opens 22nd March 2012 and runs until June 1st.
