Courtney Barnett released a charming new video for her single “Elevator Operator” and our heroine plays—you guessed it—an honest-to-goodness elevator operator. After running late for work past some very confused tourists, Barnett boards her elevator and things take a surreal turn.
The door opens onto a beach, men playing chess, and other curious scenes as the day goes on. Sleater Kinney, Jeff Tweedy, Magda Szubanski, the Drones, Tim Rogers, and Paul Kelly all make cameos.
