If the title of their forthcoming cassette EP is any indication, Seattle psych-rock three-piece Marion Walker don't joke around when it comes to outdoor eating. Serious Picnic is due out June 23 on Casino Trash Records, but before the new release lands, Exclaim! has got your first look at the band's video for "We Won't Be in Love Much Longer."
A press release describes their sound as a "head-on collision between doomy, bleak worlds and fuzzed-out, technicolor tones," that ability to meld opposing creative worlds together rings true in the new video, as well. Part dance film, part art flick, the clip's description calls it "a nostalgic episode in the dead of a Southern summer night."
From artistically shot driving scenes to choreographed sequences set against the dark of night to a piano getting set ablaze, the clip brings together the group's musical talent with their creative side projects like dance, sound editing and filmmaking. Watch those skillsets come together and shine in the new clip for "We Won't Be in Love Much Longer" above.
