From the album Non-Believers, out May 4, 2015 on Merge Records.

Directed by Trudy Benson.


Superchunk vet Mac McCaughan is offering up another synth-slathered preview from his upcoming Non-Believers solo LP, this time preserving his softened "Wet Leaves" in a spiral-heavy music video.

It's a pretty straightforward clip put together by director Trudy Benson, who also provided the album artwork to Non-Believers. As the song unfolds via pillowy clouds of vintage keyboard tones, a punchy old school drum machine beat, and McCaughan's nostalgia-laced lines, we see various painted patterns swirl across the screen. The song also features Spent's Annie Hayden adding equally pleasing backups.

McCaughan explained in a press statement of the team-up, "This song started with the one lyric and the drum machine pattern and then I layered on the synths before realizing I needed Annie Hayden to sing on it; luckily she was willing to do that from her Los Angeles home."

McCaughan issues his new album May 5 through Merge.
