Okkervil River – “It Was My Season” Lyric Video

By Tom Breihan / June 17, 2013

Will Sheff, frontman for literate Texan indie band Okkervil River, has lately been busying himself with the DIY synthpop project Lovestreams, but his main band comes roaring back in a couple of months with a new album called The Silver Gymnasium. This morning, we get to hear our first taste of the album: A slow-building, piano-led track called “It Was My Season.” The lyric video for the song shows a lady turning on an old projector in a dusty auditorium somewhere, and you can watch it and hear the song below.

The Silver Gymnasium is out 9/3 on ATO, the band’s new label home.
