EXCLUSIVE: Watch Holopaw's 'The Lights From The Disco' Video


By Jerry Portwood

The gay lead singer of the indie outfit has created a wonderful gay short film

Sequins, glittery headdresses, and floral capes. No, it's not some queen's drag closet, it's the eclectic imagery in "The Lights From the Disco," the latest video from Holopaw, the Gainesville, Florida-based indie band.

The single comes from Holopaw's new album, Academy Songs, Volume I, which released January 15 and seems to tell the narrative of a solitary, alienated man, as on "Discotheque" (listen to it here). Lead singer John Orth, who is gay, also directed the gorgeous video. We want more, John!
