Craig Finn "God in Chicago" (video)
The track follows the previously shared "Preludes," but hears the singer-songwriter offering up decidedly more sombre fare this time around. Driven by plunking piano keys and spoken word lyric delivery, the track is accompanied by a video that tells the story of a couple of runaways caught up in sketchy business dealings and young love.
Finn gave a bit more context to the new video in an Instagram post this morning (March 8).
Today we are premiering the video for "God in Chicago" at @nowness. The song is about two people thrown together on a quick but necessary adventure. Together they find escape and wonder, if only for a small time. The video was made by @krismerc and he did an incredible job of capturing the characters and the tone. My favorite video I've ever been involved with, by a long way. I hope you will check it out. Link in bio. #cfjpn
As mentioned, the beautifully shot clip was directed by Kris Merc, and you can watch it below via Nowness.
