In the new video for “Close Up,” Peaches struggles in the world of Mexican wrestling — with her musical collaborator-turned-coach Kim Gordon. Directed by her frequent collaborator Vice Cooler, Peaches' latest video was filmed in Los Angeles. "I'm fascinated by Lucha VaVOOM, the work they do, and by classic bro movies like Rocky," Peaches explains. "The relationships between coach and student and between men and their sports. For 'Close Up,' I wanted to combine the two, adding some little twists.”
Gordon recently discussed the collaboration with Marc Maron on his WTF podcast saying it was “a minimal hip hop track, and I just put something down and then Peaches built a rap around it.”
The song is from her new album Rub, out Sept. 25 on I U She Music via INgrooves.
