On his absurdly great new Little Wings album Explains, Kyle Field relishes in hard-earned ambiguity. Is his howling serious? Is his dancing ironic? How to reconcile the gorgeous, orchestrated folk of the songs with filtered in bits of white noise and all the lyrical flotsam? In the video for “Light Brang,” Field answers none of these questions, opting instead to dance around with sparklers on the Japanese island of Miyazaki. That the video was shot in the dark is another layer of irony; Miyazaki is known for its gorgeous scenery, and we see none of it. Never change, Little Wings. Watch below.
