An Incredible New Video From Explosions In The Sky
Explosions In The Sky just released an incredible new music video for “Postcard From 1952“, from their fifth studio album Take Care, Take Care, Take Care, released on Temporary Residence Ltd. Directed by Annie Gunn and Peter Simonite, “Postcard From 1952” employs yet another expansively cinematic track from Take Care, Take Care, Take Care as the perfect compliment to an indelible visual experience. Gunn and Simonite re-create a series of vintage Polaroid moments with painstaking care to every detail from vintage styling to flash cube lighting for a trip back in time that explores moments before and after these memory fragments were captured. Watch the new video below.
This is certainly one of the most stunning music videos ever made, and Explosions In The Sky’s track is perfect for it. Their music lends a perfect sonic imagery that, when paired up with video or film, comes alive. It also creates complete emotional juxtaposition within the mind of the listener. One moment you feel happy and secure and the next melancholy and vulnerable. This was the same range of emotions we experienced at “Taking Care”: 6 Visual Interpretations At Hollywood Forever Cemetery last year.
Explosions In The Sky will be kicking off their newest tour with an appearance at Sasquatch Music Festival. Joining them will once again be their Temporary Residence label mates Zammuto, the latest project of Nick Zammuto, half of highly acclaimed collage-duo The Books. The upcoming dates include headline shows at such prestigious venues as the Chicago Theater in Chicago and Nashville’s revered Ryman Auditorium, in addition to appearances at the Sasquatch Music Festival in George, Washington and the Governor’s Ball Music Festival on Randall’s Island in New York City.
