Ex-Awesome Color frontman Derek Stanton’s new project Turn To Crime released their crunchy post-punk debut earlier this month. The band was formed after Stanton moved back to Detroit, and it makes sense that the city that inspired him would feature prominently in the video for “Can’t Love,” which mostly consists of quick cuts of snowy footage shot during what the band called “the coldest winter anyone can remember.” That footage is intercut with beautiful anonymous love letters submitted by people in the Detroit area, helping to establish a mood that goes well with the music. Watch below.
Turn To Crime’s debut album Can’t Love is out now via Old Flame/Mugg & Bopp. The band also just released a compilation called Neighborhood Watch #1 which features covers of bands like Protomartyr and Tyvek who are also from the Detroit area.
