Kisses – “Huddle” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
For the Adrian Buitenhuis-directed video for L.A. new wavers Kisses’ “Huddle,” the duo adds a pint-size percussionist into the mix, who also seems to function as the band’s voice of reason — at least for the sake of the clip’s narrative. It utilizes an Off-To-College theme, where the band expects to all stick together at community college instead of only spending one more summer together and dispersing. Alas, someone in the group has gotten accepted elsewhere and sorrow-ensues. The muted colors, provided by Director Of Photography Ben Loeb, suit up with the song’s somber tone and the murky storyline. Will Kisses make it to the fall? Watch below.
