Your Cannons – Sparrow

Last month I had the pleasure to participate in the 48 Hour Music Video Race. I got paired up with Your Cannons , collaborated with new friends, slept very very little, got delirious and made this music video for their song Sparrow. I hope you enjoy.

About the band:
With members from England, Sweden, Colorado and the Bay Area, they pool their diverse influences to build songs around a surging shoegaze groove that leans into the exploratory post-punk and psychedelic rock of latter-day Talk Talk and early day Verve. It’s been said that they have “…an otherworldly sound, like, a slow-motion mosh in a room filled with red strobe lights.”

About the video:
Why does the sparrow continue to dive into the thorny blackberry bush? Why do we fall in love even though we know our hearts might get broken? In a moving song by Your Cannons, we see how the monotony and painfulness of life can also be ground from which we take flight and change our world from grey to color. Why? Because we have to.
