We’re massive followers of Break up Single round right here, and never simply because chief architect Jason Narducy is each our fellow Chicagoan and the bassist in a few of our favourite bands (together with Superchunk and Bob Mould’s band). Quite a lot of Narducy’s movies as Break up Single have been a little bit bit foolish—you could recall seeing “the sexiest elbows in rock” collection—however for the brand new “Depart My Thoughts” (from final yr’s Metallic Frames), he’s a bit extra contemplative. Beneath, some ideas from Narducy on the track and video, plus new Break up Single tour dates. Above, the video itself. Get pleasure from.
“Depart My Thoughts” is one in every of my favorites from Metallic Frames, however I are inclined to make movies for songs that match a comedic tone like we did with “Untry Love,” “Monolith,” and “Fragmented World”. It is a extra critical, ambient track so I wished to make one thing visually becoming its temper. The video was shot in Evanston (the place I stay). Photographer James Richards IV filmed the sluggish movement footage of me strolling after which I recorded the opposite 90 % of the video on my iPhone. All of it got here collectively as soon as editor Sam O’Brien acquired his fingers on it. I really like how he layered the footage into one thing that matches the lyrics and sonic area.
