Steve Gunn "Park Bench Smile" (lyric video)
Published May 23, 2016After hitting the open road on his motorcycle in his recent "Ancient Jules" video, Steve Gunn is now taking to public transit for his latest Eyes on the Lines preview. Specifically, he's brought us to a subway station for the lyric video for his "Park Bench Smile."
As the song's thin brush shuffle of drums picks up, we see a series of steel subway cars speed past the screen. Relatively more static are the lyrics, which hover centre screen and hint at cosmic plans, song-based trickery, and the sight of the titular bench.
You can piece together the narrative below, while Gunn's Eyes on the Lines materializes June 3 through Matador Records.
