There is something mesmerizing in the purity of glass accentuated by the softness of primary color. In the latest video by Inner Tongue and directed by Patrick Sturm, we’re given a QVC-style display of a translucent award featuring a golden map of Earth. Smokey falsetto narrates the scene as we pan around, observing subtle brilliance and tranquil tone – until the inevitable arrives. Unseen forces chip away at our beautiful accolade, bringing destructive symbolism to the forefront that reminds us of a harsh, yet inexorable truth of life.
Inner Tongue’s forthcoming record, Favours, is out May 25th via Mount Silver. Stay tuned and watch below.
