We usually try to shake things up and start something new…frequently, we’re told about great, hardworking artists beyond the East Coast. These articles are exclusive to our newsletter subscribers.
Hailing from the City of Angels, Young Jesus is the newest addition to Saddle Creek Records! They also have a sick new music video to brag about too:
A nine-minute emotional roller coaster that crosses genres as it seems to cross into different feelings of intense emotion. Poetic slowcore, indie rock, free-form jazz, and post-hardcore. After a couple listens, they give off a mix of American Football meets Broken Social Scene, and during the intense emotional segments, there’s a resemblance to Pile.
Shot all in one day, the stop-motion video is a visual collage of poetry, paintings, and drawings. The drawings in the song don’t show the feeling most people would assume to see. Being made up of mostly straight lines and some curves, you can see them create shapes like the silhouette of a city. There seems to be no emotion in the city silhouette, giving the assumption that the singer is longing for something different, something real, and somewhere he can feel at home in.
