Published Feb 06, 2014Ariel Pink's recent collaborative streak includes work with Justin Raisen and Sky Ferreira, but he also formed a project called Jorge Elbrose with Violens/Lansing-Dreiden member Jorge Elbrecht last year. Now, they've shared a video for their song "Called to Ring."
Elbrecht, who directed the clip, offered an explanation of the video with the following statement:
For this video we tried to imagine a perfect band to play 'Called to Ring,' and I think we succeeded. The idea was to have a wash of hair, camo, and white guitars all happening in slow motion, with Ariel and I popping in and out as these cold, eyeless theater masks. As we sing in unison on the recording, we thought we should spend the bulk of the video conjoined. Such a pleasure to work on this with everyone, I'm really proud of how it turned out.
