If you are wondering what the f&$k is up with the awesome new video posted in the “You Need This” feature on the Rabbits Black homepage, look no further. New York based A Place to Bury Strangers (APTBS) has just debuted a hipstamatic new video for a single off of their soon to be released EP Onwards to the Wall. Adding to the buzz, the band has also recently announced US tour dates for Spring 2012!! Tickets are already on sale for the March LA show with The Joy Formidable. Details after the transport…
In case you want to get a better view of the video from “You Need This,” check it:
Their music has been labeled “noise rock” or “shoegazing,” and I am not sure what all of that really means. All that matters is that the Rabbits Black staff is stoked on their new video and song “So Far Away” for its effective simplicity and extremely catchy rhythmic vibe. Give it a listen, I dare you. Just don’t start complaining when you get sucked in to its hypnotic melody and crafty rawness. The video was shot using an IPhone with the “Ina’1969 Film” Hipstamatic setting to give it an animated flip-book effect. This style of video really works with the flow of the song, adding a proper visual element to the listening experience.
Tickets for the March 14th LA show with The Joy Formidable @ The Music Box can be purchased here:
Stay tuned for ticket details for the Bay Area Tour Dates and the EP release later this year!!
