Video Premiere

Them Are Us Too’s Post-Punk Phantasmagoria in The Video for “Floor”

To celebrate the release of what was intended to be their second album, which had previously went unfinished due to the tragic death of guitarist Cash Askew, Bay Area dreampop darlings Them Are Us Too have released today their Leigh Violet (Visage Irregular) directed video for the song “Floor”.

The video is an intense black and white phantasmagoria where singer Kennedy Ashlyn sings intensely with brandishing a knife as a masked figure with sharp nails encircles her.

The new song follows the debut of “Grey Water”, also featured on Amends, but “Floor” is the album’s crowning jewel, not shy in being head over heels in love with its influences.

Amends was lovingly put together by with the help of producer Joshua Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv), Sunny Haire (Cash’s stepfather), Matia Simovich (INHALT), and Anya Dross (Cash’s girlfriend), who all came together with Kennedy Ashlynn to complete the unfinished demos and sketches that were to be Them Are Us Too’s second album.

Amends is a collection of songs that would have been the second Them Are Us Too record,” Kennedy explains.

“This release is an amendment to our catalogue cut short; a final gift to our family, friends, and fans who have supported us for the past fives years. Amends is a collaborative effort between TAUT and some of Cash’s dearest friends and family, culminating in a final ‘thank you’ and ‘goodbye.’ Nothing will ever compensate for the loss of Cash, but as we struggle to put together the pieces of what the world is now, what life is now, I hope this record can help to fill in the gaps. And give us some amount of peace.

Amends is out todayP on standard black vinyl, as well as limited edition clear (100 copies) and green (400 copies), compact disc and digital formats.
