Last week, we announced Blonder would be breaking two years of silence with its outstanding new full-length, Blender, when we streamed three songs from the record. Prior to Blender‘s June 16 release, the band also completed a downright astounding music video for the album’s first single.
Much like the band’s recorded output, the video for “Lucky” applies a time-consuming and meticulous approach to a simple concept, with exceptional results. Drummer Eric Risser (who also recorded the album) made and shot the stop motion visuals, which encompass some of the lyrics and the song’s overriding theme.
Both Blender and the record’s first video seem basic from a distance, but upon closer consideration, it’s clear something special rests beneath the surface. Don’t just take our word for it. Watch the video for “Lucky” below and listen to Blender when it comes out Friday.
