Bellows – “Thick Skin” Video

Bellows’ excellent new album Fist & Palm came out last month, the band just embarked on a tour with PWR BTTM and Lisa Prank, and today they’re sharing their first-ever music video for jubilant lead single “Thick Skin.” The clip follows Kalb around New York City in a vividly pieced together manner that captures the joy and longing of the song: “The video sort of retraces the steps I took discovering New York for the first time as a teenager,” Kalb explained to NPR, who debuted the video. “I’m showing [director] Rob [Kolodny] around these places that were so significant for me growing up, and inviting the viewers to follow us around these places that still sit in my memory in such a rich way.” Watch below.
