Tucson electro-pop trio BRYDES are back with their second music video, and this one, directed by Caleb Jackson, puts an aesthetic to that '80s pop revival sound BRYDES (à la Haim, Chairlift) has been working with. Starting with VFX that'd be at home in any "Miami Vice" episode and bookended by two freeze frames, the video for BRYDES' new single "Catcall" is a slice of visual nostalgia.

With a full dance troupe backing her up (choreographed by UA alum Kat Messner), BRYDES frontwoman Kaia Mazza dances through the songs commanding vocals, embellished by glittering synth and punctuated by powerful drum hits. For those hits, I counted a whiplash-inducing ten total hair flips throughout the video, not including what seemed to be just turns, six of which were Mazza's. 

Tucson-based animator Adela Navarrette made the first BRYDES video for the song "Bright Eyed Boy," which won top honors at Loft Cinema's monthly First Friday Shorts screening back in August. Both songs come from BRYDES' first EP release Turquoise.

BRYDES is performing live in Tucson at Club Congress (311 E. Congress St.) as a part of the Saint Cecilia Studios showcase. The event also features Amadee. and Tyler Akin. Doors open at 8 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 4 and admission is free. It is a 21 and over event.
