Yellow Ostrich – Ghost


Alex Schaff and the guys from Yellow Ostrich are back at it again with a video for “Ghost” that tugs at the heartstrings. Director Frank Larson’s adds a gorgeous visual dimension to the track. The piece evokes an extreme sense of loneliness, beginning with Schaff sitting alone staring out a window. But what makes it so hauntingly beautiful is how his memories are projected via 8mm home video across the dark house where he resides. Slowly, the video becomes an array of these hazy clips, ending as it begins. It’s not going to brighten your day, but it’s well worth a watch. Just make sure to keep a box of tissues nearby.

Yellow Ostrich’s Ghost is out now via Barsuk.
