Elvis Depressedly – “Up In The Air” Video

Elvis Depressedly’s california dreamin’ EP, which was recorded around the same time as 2013’s holo pleasures but was never released, comes out today, and to mark the occasion, the Asheville-based duo have put out a video for “Up In The Air,” the EP’s listless closing track. The video, directed by Katherine McCollough, is as impressionistic as the song itself. McCollough tells The Fader:

The “Up in the Air” video was shot over the past year and documents a period of transition for Elvis Depressedly. There’s footage from Spartanburg, South Carolina, where Mat grew up, and from Asheville, North Carolina, the city Mat and Delaney have called home for two years since moving from Columbia, South Carolina and signing to Run for Cover. It contains a lot of people/places/things that have been meaningful and influential to them, either historically or just since this recent period of rapid change. I hope watching the video feels sort of like reading shorthand entries in someone’s private journal: compelling because it’s intimate and evocative, but not totally decipherable.
