Los Angeles-based indie revival pop group Father Tiger's video for
their single First Love has a surprising gay ending.
Father Tiger consists of Greg Delson and John Russell, who
discovered their own unique sound in 2005 while attending audio
The group's Summer Solstice – The Covers Album is the 3rd
in a 4-EP Equinox and Solstice project which also includes
Winter Solstice, and Vernal Equinox. Autumnal
Equinox arrives in September.
On Thursday, Delson and Russell released the video for the track
First Love. The group said in a press release that partial
proceeds from the single will go to marriage equality groups,
including Freedom to Marry, American Foundation for Equal Rights
(AFER), and Lambda Legal. The venue used to film the video
contributed their fee to the Gay and Lesbian Center of Los Angeles.
In the video, Delson and Russell are playing a wedding. Through
flashbacks we learn that the supposed bride and groom have known each
other since they were toddlers. As the couple prepares to exchange
vows, a dramatic twist is revealed. (The video is embedded on this
our video library for more videos.)
