[Video] Whalebones – “I Don’t Wanna Live in The City No More”
The very first video from psych-blues trio Whalebones comes courtesy of director Jon Meyer who last year actually made newcomers My Goodness look as badass as they sound in their “I’ve Got a Notion” video. For “I Don’t Wanna Live in The City No More” Meyer does a fair job interpreting “psych” and effectively creating the sensation of visually tripping in the live band shots. 30 seconds in I actually shuddered at the memory of a similarly photo-euphoric night I’d rather not repeat from some years ago. The sunwashed tour shots interspersed gave the video some feel-good balance, but also served as a damned reminder that though spring is upon us, the sun is dragging it’s feet still.
