Courtney Barnett: Elevator Operator
on 06 July 2016
A love letter to Melbourne, Courtney Barnett's "Elevator Operator" includes plenty of city-centric nods in the lyrics and just-released music video. Featuring Australian musical royalty (Paul Kelly), beloved comedians (Magda Szubanski) and more, the video hits lots of recognizable spots in the city—from beaches to the Nicholas Building (and its notorious elevators). With a cameo from Sleater-Kinney, mentions of Vegemite and Barnett herself dressed as a very cute concierge, this video is super-playful—despite the lyrics revolving around a disenchanted 20-year-old who's feeling a little lost.
