Video: Blues Control – “Open Air”


It’s been some time since we’ve heard from Blues Control, but just as summer greets us, they’ve released a beautiful new video for the song “Open Air,” off 2012’s Valley Tangents. Directed by Tara Sinn (who also directed the video for “Love’s A Rondo”), the video creates a pastoral-like terrain, communicating the song’s ambient qualities, which slowly builds aurally and visually with footage that becomes progressively more experimental as it approaches its denouement.


Video: Blues Control ~ “Walking Robin”

Blues Control have released the video for “Walking Robin,” taken from their latest LP Valley Tangents, out now on Drag City. As birds soar through the sky and effiges burn, a beat from what sounds like an 80s Casio keyboard coasts below the sun soaked guitar lines in the synthy, lo-fi murk. At times, it almost recalls Sensations Fix with a dose of Rangers. The video was directed by French filmmaker/artist Clémence Hébert and filmed on Tunø, a small Danish island in the Kattegat Sea, during Midsummer day.
