Glint – “While You Sleep” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

We posted Glint’s evocative single “While You Sleep” last spring, but we haven’t heard from them since then. However, the NY rock trio is back today, sharing visuals for “While You Sleep” and upgrading it to lead single status for their new album Inverter. The song overflows with emotion, and director Ryan Rothermel’s video inspires that same feeling — well, feelings. A sunburned man meanders through the desert exhausted and aimless as he finds gold objects on the ground. The objects entertain him briefly, but obviously have no real worth as he searches for sustenance. Just as he finds what he believes to be something to drink, he discovers it is gold flakes, leaving him frustrated and angry. The clip is a great expression of the longing and desire that hangs over the track, and aptly depicts the anguish that results from sustaining the damage from those feelings for too long. Check it out below.

Inverter is out 3/11 via Votiv. Preorder is available here.
