"The Wilderness" by Soft Fangs from the album The Light (2016), available on Disposable America and Exploding In Sound.
Filmed and directed by Jenny Tuite, Edited by John Lutkevich.
Soft Fangs - the Band To Watch and songwriting project of New York-based musician John Lutkevich - put out their debut album, The Light, earlier this year. We highlighted a number of tracks from it, including “The Air,” “Birthday,” “The Light,” and “The Wilderness.” The latter track now has a video to go along with it, which was directed by Jenny Tuite (of Dirty Dishes) and shot on and around a beach in Maine, aimlessly following around Lutkevich as he meanders around, lights sparklers at night, and explores the sights.
“When you’re a kid, you conjure up all sorts of imaginary things, purely because you’ve got nothing better to do,” he explains. “From aimlessness, something is created. I wanted to explore that, so we went to the beach with nothing planned & I dressed like a figment of my imagination. At the end of the day, we had a music video, and that seemed purposeful enough.” -- Stereogum
