Model/Actriz - Crossing Guard
Model/Actriz - Crossing Guard from the 2023 album Dogsbody on True Panther
Brooklyn-based band Model/Actriz taps into Greek mythology on today's Song of the Day.
The titular "Crossing Guard" is the figure Charon, the ferryman of the dead who transported the ghosts of the dead across the rivers Styx. As the post-punk band explained to Paper Mag, the accompanying music video, directed by Nathan Castiel, captures vocalist/lyricist Cole Haden conveying "the body's fragility and gradual degradation through slow, deliberate movement," via choreography by Alena Henke.
The band also cites the track as the "initial creative revelations that guided and buoyed [them] to completing" their debut LP, Dogsbody, released last month via True Panther.
