The Drowners's new video for their single, "Long Hair" (EP/download out on January 14th 2013 on Birthday Records) is a party that realistically goes from fun to debaucherous in minutes. Says director Alan Del Rio Ortiz, "Matt [Hitt] approached me to make a video a few months ago based on some of the stuff I've done with Dev [Hynes]. He said he wanted it to look like we accidentally made a music video, so we set up a few situations and I followed him around all day with my VHS camera." The result, like the style of the long-haired protagonists of the song, is effortless.
