Music Video: Pageant Boys – "Because" & "Last Rites"

by Jeremy Johnson

Last month, local act Pageant Boys released a music video for “Because” and a lyric video for “Last Rites.” The video for “Because” features fragments of the band performing in Timmons Chapel on PSU’s campus, stitched together in a way that befits the spare, haunted electronic vibe of the song. “Last Rites” makes use of found black and white video that, when matched with those synths and Alex Shepard’s falsetto croon, will make for the creepiest train ride you’re likely to ever take.

Pageant Boys don’t currently have any shows scheduled, but keep an eye out for them in the coming months. Check out both videos below, and listen to more of Pageant Boys here.
