Published Aug 28, 2015Brooklyn noise rock shoegazers A Place to Bury Strangers released their Transfixiation album early this year, and now that that's all over they've shared a video for "Now It's Over."
The clip utilizes a diverse spread of animation styles to create a noirish, eclectic look. It was directed by Dave Merson Hess, who shared the following statement about its creation:
I loved the mood of 'Now It's Over', and the way the lyrics and arrangement captured the feeling of a breakup as a complete destruction of a particular, insular reality, a way of living being ripped apart at the seams, on both vague and sudden terms. Film noir felt like a perfect match for it. The inevitability of failure built into the genre fit the song's lyrics, murky, reverbed vocals, and jagged guitar sounds.
