Kyle Craft’s acclaimed debut album Dolls of Highland is only three-ish weeks old and yet he already has his first music video in the can. And I’ll tell you what, this can in particular is worth the watch. As with the album, the video leaves no room for disappointment.
The saucy new visual was co-directed by Craft and Tyler Bertram, and Craft had this to say of the process: “The video just fell into my lap in a lot of ways. I wanted something quick with a candid feel to it. One of my roommates was having his annual drag birthday get together and it seemed like the story would sort of write itself if we just started shooting. I feel like we approached this in the same way I approached the album… Hit record, see what happens.”
Kyle Craft’s late spring U.S. tour in support of Dolls of Highland resumes tonight, May 19th in San Francisco at the Independent and currently ends May 30th in Salt Lake City, UT at Kilby Court. Along the way, he’ll support Fruit Bats (May19th-25th) and share the stage with label mates Arbor Labor Union (May 29th). Additional live dates will be announced shortly. (complete dates below.)
