Fresh off the release of his debut EP to anyone who cares, Slimdan is gearing up to embark on an extensive summer tour of North America alongside Sasha Alex Sloan—a fact that may surprise anyone who connected with the lyrics of the EP’s standout single “Politics and Party Tricks.” After all, according to Slimdan, the track is “about my experience of hating to go out while simultaneously desperately needing to be invited to things.”
Yet for the track’s new video, the songwriter managed to both go out to a formal event and not receive an invitation to do so, filming the visual at a random get-together before being escorted out by security. “This video is me and my producer Theo crashing a wedding at the Hilton Universal City,” he explains of the clip, which sees him lip syncing to the song while the event’s being set up and during the reception, even joining hands with the guests during the hora dance before things take a quick turn. “It was hands down one of scariest and stupidest things I’ve ever done. 10/10, do not recommend.”
Watch the clip below, and catch Slimdan on tour at these dates.
