Loney Dear – “Loney Blues” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
In Loney Dear’s new video, a masked skateboarder skates between stark city scenes set to songwriter Emil Svanängen’s slow, orchestral build. Tone-wise, it’s a pretty clean match. It’s somewhat reminiscent of that series of videos the Roots put out as their release of undun approached, pitting a silent protagonist against an bleak backdrop. Check out the clip, directed by Ewan Macleod.
