While the majority of the Chicago music community was at Union Park for this past weekend’s Pitchfork Festival, the members of dance pop act Victorian Halls were keeping cool inside an air conditioned office building in the southern suburb of Palos Heights. The group spent the majority of Sunday there filming a video for its song “A Crush Is A Crush,” off the band’s forthcoming full length debut Charlatan, set to drop August 16th on Victory.

CVU was on hand for a portion of the day’s filming, which involved a “box monster” (above) as just one of the clip’s elements. A “stuffed animal monster” is also said to make an appearance in the video, which frontman Sean Lenart described on set as “Eternal Sunshine meets Inception.” Get more on Lenart’s take on the video in the exclusive CVU clip below, and watch for more from Victorian Halls and Charlatan in the coming weeks at this site.
