“How Many Blankets Are In The World?” is the sparest track on Saintseneca’s Such Things, the one where Zac Little howls about existential crises and Smashing Pumpkins nostalgia over nothing but minimal ukulele plucking and faint ambient sound. Its video is accordingly simple and beautiful. Director Jon Washington, who made the band’s great “Bad Ideas” video, filmed Little wandering around inside a Columbus drainage tunnel, and his shots use the light at the end of the tunnel the same way the song uses white noise. Here’s Little on the clip’s genesis:
I first explored this tunnel with some friends. After hearing the eerie echo of footsteps and voices, I knew it would a good place to sing a song.
It is indeed! -- Stereogum
