San Francisco duo, Billy & Dolly are preparing to release their new album, Five Suns on June 8th. Surviving the Golden Age is excited to premiere the music video for their single, “Bobby.”
Over a backdrop of droning synths and dirge-like drums, the story about avoiding a lover unfolds. The video illustrates the song’s 70’s retro-future sound rather than directly telling the story. A person in a head-to-toe shiny silver bodysuit wanders around a Southwestern desert that looks like a completely different planet. Some of the lyrics get vaguely illustrated, like an old rotary telephone in a stream is shown when Dolly sings “if Bobby calls, tell him I’m not home/if he calls again, tell him that I’m dead” in a defiant fashion.
