From The Barr Brothers new album 'Sleeping Operator' 

Director: Kaveh Nabatian

Usually, when we watch a rock band play, we don't look at the details of how the music is being made. We hear music coming at us, almost magically, from larger-than-life beings singing and playing instruments. With this video, I wanted to deconstruct the way in which the music is actually created: strings vibrating, fingers moving with Olympic agility and precision, tendons flexing, involuntary muscle movements, quivering metal plates. As the video becomes more psychedelic, I imagined where the music comes from, using archives and home videos from the band: the universe around us, childhood memories, travel, catastrophe, magic, the birth of a child. 


Playing into the title of the Barr Brothers' new Sleeping Operator single "Half Crazy," a black and white video for the track appears to be injected with a touch of madness in its back end.

The video opens with business as usual for the band, with a series of close-up shots keeping an eye on the backwoods blues shuffler's greased-up slide guitar work, vocalist Brad Barr's stubbly adam's apple and the pluck of a giant harp. As it throttles along, a shift in tone finds band members either being covered in constellations, fixating on vintage cartoon skeletons or morphing into a bass-loving batch of owl heads.

You can catch the clip for "Half Crazy" above, while Sleeping Operator drops October 7 via Secret City Records.
