White Hinterland + Project Runway = Portland Love

Like Young Jeezy, Project Runway winner Gretchen Jones puts on for her city. On Thursday’s Season 8 finale, the Portland native- who is a big White Hinterland fan and friend of Casey Dienel – used “Icarus” as the soundtrack to her winning collection.

I talked to Casey a bit about this earlier today, and it was really great to hear what a collaborative effort this all was and how much thought and care was put into it. She writes:

We share a similar sensibility. I really like feminine, diaphanous music, and she designs feminine, diaphanous clothing. It’s been really crazy and cool to see her hard work rewarded–she’s an amazing designer, and I actually own and frequently wear some of her designs. She was adamant about backing up her friends in town who do amazing things (her friend Sara helped produce the jewelry, I did music) to showcase all of the creative work coming out of our fair city.

When it came time to do the Project Runway thing, we had to keep it totally underwraps. I had no idea if she was going to be a finalist, let alone win. I was given a slight peek into her inspiration for the line and it’s name, Running Through Thunder, which allowed Shawn & I to make a custom remix incorporating elements of the collection.

The introductory video for Jones’ site also features “Icarus” and an ethereal, whimsical aesthetic much like that of Kairos.

Watch New White Hinterland Video for “No Logic”

NoLogic

This weekend, Gorilla VS. Bear premiered the new White Hinterland video for “No Logic,” directed by Solomon Chase. It was filmed on a Spring evening in the woods of North Carolina. Shot in infrared, the video is a stunning black and white interplay that reveals Casey Dienel and Shawn Creeden amidst wandering forest creatures of the night. Its eerie, enigmatic and electrifying! But you really just gotta see for yourself.


White Hinterland are playing at Holocene for Portland’s MusicfestNW on September 10th. You can buy your tickets right here!
