When we gave you our thoughts on Transference, “Written In Reverse” was described as “a bona fide rocker with Daniel’s busy throat-shredding falsetto, splashy drums, and piano noise brushed beneath the big guitars.” When the band brought the song to Conan (RIP), some of you thought Britt’s voice was a bit too shredded. The Danny Clinch-shot video for the track finds the group running through another performance of the song, this time in black and white beside a view-reversing mirror. It’s set to a
studio new cleaned-up live version of the song. The guys are also more animated than last time through, as that above Britt-as-Hendrix thumbnail suggests.
Transference is out via Merge.
