Believe it or not, music videos still exist. Sound Tracks trolls the internet to find the best and the worst of local artists’ new singles and the good, bad, or otherwise noteworthy visuals that accompany them.
In the first video single from Timber Timbre‘s upcoming album Creep On Creepin’ On, the band’s spooky, bluesy sound gets paired with a vintage silent movie–inspired treatment. The flickering, jittery look of it risks overwhelming the sparsity of the song but it turns out to be the perfect picture companion.
Directed by Kate Young and Eriver Hijano, “Woman” centres on a sad-seeming couple, highlighting the tension in silence. They sit and have some tea and they pace and they stare. Things get restless at around the 3:00 mark, just like in the song, warbling and stomping quietly, steadily, though eerily.
With “Woman” as an early indicator, the next album will be more of the same sparse, haunting sounds as previous Timber Timbre releases, which means everyone will once again going lose their minds over it. It’s out April 5 on Arts and Crafts.
