This past spring, when we premiered Sarah Bethe Nelson’s rollicking, emotionally vulnerable country-rock album Fast Moving Clouds, I noted that her detachment moved this record from breakup album territory into something more nuanced. The slight separation between Nelson and the stories of heartache she’s telling are on full display in the video for the album’s title track, which she shares today. Reminiscing on a relationship that doubles as a getaway and a journey moving fast enough that she can’t break free, Nelson remains deadpan throughout the shadowy clip. The video was directed by Justin Frahm. Watch it below.
