The cover art for BTW Family Band’s forthcoming LP Grace & Lies pointed toward the concept for this video for “Night Song” — singer Kim Krans, face in black and white and drawn all over. Kim’s typical fine art takes a backseat to a “slideshow” of “these sort of stupid, crude images” which “was such a release for me,” she told NPR. “The narrative started to take a weird, dark turn toward consumption and feeling generally overwhelmed with all the things we are supposed to be, have, do, look like, feel like.” So it’s a crude slideshow on the canvas of Kim Krans’s statuesque face, and starkly effective for it.
