Fraternal Twin – “Boil” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

James Rettig | February 26, 2016 - 12:06 pm

The plaintively confessional songwriting mode that Tom Christie inhibits on Skin Gets Hot, his debut album as Fraternal Twin, is the sort of introspection tailor-made for long night drives thinking about where everything steered off course, a mood that his new video for “Boil” tries to capture. Most of it consists of shots of highway lights zooming by, slightly out-of-focus like they get when your eyelids start to droop. Christie makes an appearance for a moment in snowy daylight, but the rest of the video is a solitary affair. The album is being reissued on vinyl via Ghost Ramp, and you can watch the “Boil” video below.
