Pure X – “Thousand Year Old Child” Video

By Tom Breihan / June 12, 2013

Thousand Year Old Child” is a deeply pretty song from Crawling Up The Stairs, the new album by the gently expansive Austin fuzz-rock trio Pure X. And its new video, from director Malcolm Elijah, works as a study of the deep lines on the face of Bob Olson, the video’s lead actor. The beautifully shot black-and-white clip follows Olson’s quick transition from haggard farmer to cabaret star, and it finds Olson lip-syncing for helium-voiced Pure X frontman Nate Grace. It’s a great video, and you can watch it below.

Crawling Up The Stairs is out now via Acéphale.
