Exclusive Video Spin: Good Personalities — Genius

Exclusive Spin / News / December 30, 2016

Good Personalities take cues from droning ’90s alternative rock, classic rock’s far-reaching vocals, and the early-2010s grunge renaissance with their video for “Genius,” premiering below. As the Toledo brother-sister two-piece plays to no one, obscure VCR filters (courtesy of the family VHS camcorder) splice optical illusions over home movies of the siblings and cuts of an anime videotape. The intermingling of so many nostalgic sources fits the band’s time-capsule blueprint, but also hums with this world’s obsession with throwbacks in a darker, melodic light.

Good Personalities’ Together will be digitally released on January 21st, with CDs following a week later. Pre-orders are available here.
