On “Dropping Houses,” Ohio rockers Wussy applied their unique blend of Midwest roots-rock and gauzy melodic swirl to a story about being inside a house carried away by a tornado. I loved how singer-guitarist Lisa Walker explained the aesthetic: “Our dorky dual fandom of ’90s shoegaze + tom petty has fully surfaced and become a really singable wall of noise.” And I furthermore enjoy what director Scott Fredette has done with the visuals, turning a simple performance video into something ominous and flashy via a black background and colorful bursts of light. Watch below.
