Texas-via-Chicago husband-and-wife team Cross Record have kicked off 2016 with a bang. We gave them Band To Watch honors last fall off the strength of the gloomy, atmospheric single “Steady Waves.” And they didn’t disappoint when their stellar album Wabi-Sabi dropped at the end of January. Today they follow their visuals for “Basket” with a clip for the woozy, warped “Lemon.” Director Andrew McGlennon’s video follows a charming elderly man on the beach who’s fond of the sauce. Not much more too it than that. Watch.
