When Quilt released “Arctic Shark” last month it was one of first exciting hints at what music we’d be hearing in 2014. Now we have a video for the track, directed by Merideth Hillbrand & Brandon Andrew which finds the trio sitting in the sun on blankets (QUILTS?!), eating fruit, strumming guitars. It’s a warm, gentle video with subtly psychedelic moments like grapes being picked in reverse. However, camera tricks don’t stand up to singer Anna Rochinski, whose lyrical lysergia comes delivered with a knowing confidence making the most surreal phrases here sound true and grounded. Watch below and check out their tour dates below.
