Music Video: “Lost Kitten” by Metric

Directed by Sammy Rawal, the new music video for Canadian indie rock band Metric’s “Lost Kitten” takes place in Mexico City and stars Sheldon McIntosh aka drag queen Tynomi Banks. “Lost Kitten” is the sixth track off their latest album, Synthetica.

“Lost Kitten” re-imagines the archetype of a hero’s journey, as Sheldon searches for his house mother – an “angel.” Sheldon’s massive presence is amplified with a sequin jacket and kitten heels as his mysterious pilgrimage leads him through Mexico City into the canal maze of Xochimilco on a flat-bottomed trajinera. He reaches his destiny, delivering an epic vogueing performance to celebrate his reunion with his house mother.
