The Winter Sounds drop a dreamy track and awesomely unnerving music video on us with ‘Earth After a Thunderstorm’.
‘Earth After a Thunderstorm’ is a far-out, electronic indie jam, fusing future sounds with acoustic melodies, while The Winter Sounds hazy vocals sweep along the surface of the track.
Singer Patrick Keenan describes ‘Earth After a Thunderstorm’ as “the melancholy and nostalgia that emerges when something triggers an old memory, like the change in seasons or a forgotten piece of music.”
The video is another story altogether. Manikins, rifle shooting and resoundingly bleak overtone. Shot in Estonia with filmmaker Zbanski Kino, it’s an intriguing and altogether entertaining visual feast, offering a look at the life of one man and his inanimate partner.
