Courtney Barnett has released a star-studded video for her 2015 track "Elevator Operator," a standout from her excellent Grammy-nominated record Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit.
The clip, directed by Sunny Leunig, sees Barnett dressed as - you guess it - a traditional elevator operator. It begins with a scene of the legendary Sleater-Kinney as tourists in the park, before Barnett races to her elevator, where the fun begins. Each level stops at a new and strange place, like a bowling alley with Paul Kelly, while a wide variety of special guests come and go, like The Drones dressed as extremely aggressive corporate workers. This is wonderfully entertaining, and the perfect accompaniment to the great song.
Here's the full list of guests, in order of appearance:
Bones Sloane & Dave Mudie
Garret and Will Huxley, Gabi Barton
Izzi Goldman and John
Nicholas & Thea Jones
Jo Syme (Big Scary)
East Brunswick All Girls Choir
Meaghan Weiley, Jess Tyler, Thommy Taranto (Milk! Records)
