Mt. Royal – “More” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Mt. Royal brings together members of Baltimore indie-rock greats Celebration, Lake Trout, and touring members of current cause célèbre Future Islands in service of brisk, brawny, bass-driven post-punk. “More,” from the group’s Dave-Fridmann-produced self-titled EP, is a fine example of that sound in which singer Katrina Ford’s breathy exultations unfurl over a slowly intensifying rhythmic churn. Director Derrick Belcham’s video sets the song to visuals of a kid in overalls having a delightful romp through nature involving a beloved stuffed fox. Things take an unexpectedly touching turn at the end. Watch and enjoy below.

Mt. Royal is out now on Bella Union.
