Where you live can be a pretty suffocating space, if you've lived there for too long. All the ramen containers will start piling up, things will fall off of your walls and you won't bother picking them up. Your pictures or whatever will just sit there, crumpled under the weight of your foot when you accidentally trip. Eventually, your room is going to just be where you sleep and you try to avoid any time spent at home, going to diners in the middle of the night, or wherever you can find a little bit of peace and quiet. But you can't do that shit forever; you need to get your shit in gear and deal with it. Like in the new Craft Spells video.
Craft Spells is a reverby-rock band from Seattle, WA. Last year, they dropped a very cool album Nausea filled to the brim with smooth and organic sounds. One of the songs "Twirl" has now been made into a visual, following two lovers/friends/people-that-know-each-other in occasional split screen trips. The woman's journey features her looking at the state of her room, probably representative of something bubbling under, and takes many of her possessions to a bridge over the river for some much needed catharsis. It's a powerful scene lending itself well to the climax of the song itself, leading the energy and distortion into a new phase and space for a listener.
Watch the video below, and check the band on tour this fall with Julian Casablancas +The Voidz.
