The video for new How To Dance single “Baby Blue” ruptures the fourth wall in the same way Mount Moriah’s music ruptures the traditional themes of Southern roots rock. The intimacy of each moment captured on camera mimics the slow and heartfelt vocals and dusty instrumentation, the clip’s surreal nature accenting the slow-burning single’s dreamy qualities all the while. Seeking to highlight the fact that each seemingly candid moment captured is indeed a construct, director Jordan Michael Blake sought to use the film’s voyeuristic qualities in order to “prompt some thought about the way to frame our own personal memories/perceptions of others.” Watch the music video for “Baby Blue” below.
