The video for “Definite Darkness,” a triumphant guitar-rager from Staten Island ’90s-indie revivalists Cymbals Eat Guitars, consists entirely of footage from some sort of drill-team tryout. In the fuzzy vintage imagery, we see huge choreographed routines, emotional reactions to news of cuts, and the visceral difficulty of maintaining a rictus smile for a long period of time. Jamie Harley directs. Watch the video and download the song below.
Cymbals Eat Guitars’ album Lenses Alien is out now on Barsuk.
