PVRIS Drop ‘Poltergeist’-Like Music Video for “White Noise”


Before we jump into this, let’s start off with a quick fun fact for all you younger readers out there: Poltergeist is an American horror film that stirred up movie-goers in the early 1980′s with spooky ghosts and ghouls who were famously referred to as “TV people” (here’s a trailer if you’re interested).   

Now that’s out of the way, let’s move on to PVRIS’ brand new ghostly music video for “White Noise.”

Staring frontwomen Lynn Gunn as a phantom stuck in ghost limbo and guitarist Alex Babinski and bassist Brian MacDonald as ghost hunters, the music video for “White Noise” is a fun and creative adaption of the 1982 horror classic. 

When asked about the motivation for creating “White Noise,” Gunn told Alt Press that the tune was actually inspired from the movie — which came out in theaters way before she and her band mates were born.           

"I originally wrote the song with a bit of inspiration from the movie," she says. "So when coming up with video concept ideas, Raul [Gonzo, director] and I both agreed we had to make it a little homage to Poltergeist.“
