The record, their third, will be out on 22nd March via Big Scary Monsters.
The video is based on a treatment by the band’s own Mike Kinsella.
“Working on the ‘Silhouettes’ video was an interesting collaboration between the artist and director,” says director Shawn Brackbill. “I prefer to work on a treatment with a band but this one came from Mike fairly well-formed. It was great to help develop the concept and bring this idea to life. I liked that Mike’s treatment for ‘Silhouettes’ came through to me without a lot of explanation for WHY things were happening. It left things open for interpretation on my end as I helped develop the story. In putting together the final treatment and shot list, I tried to keep the story open-ended as well. To allow the viewer space to make their own interpretations for what they see here in the video.”
