Let me start off by saying this: I hope you and your family have been safe and healthy during this pandemic. The world has been pretty crazy – more than normal, as I’m sure you’ve noticed.
A lot of artists have been trying to create things during the COVID-19 quarantines. In fact, since we have not been able to practice, BARRENS has been working on stuff by sending each other tracks (along with releasing a cover of Pedro the Lion’s “Bad Diary Days” on YouTube.)
I released my newest solo album back in early March and then – BAM! – quarantines and stay-at-home orders and no more live shows. I haven’t done any livestream events so far, either. But hey, I’m a filmmaker as well as a musician, so I had to do something. And this is it: The official [quarantine] music video for the title track from my most recent album Carry the Wounds.
Normally, I tend to veer more towards music videos with a storyline – more of a short film type thing, like the “Unalienable” video I directed for my friends in Brineaboy or the BARRENS’ “Jumper” video. Or even the previous “Liquid Heart” video from my new album.
The challenge here was more of an answer to the question: “What can I film by myself in isolation (and still make look… decent)?” So here’s the video, with me barefoot, as usual, and desperately needing a haircut while all the salons are closed. I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for watching, reading, and supporting. Much love. (Imagine Facebook’s new “care” reaction emoji here.)
