When we last checked in with Flat Teeth, the Milwaukee indie outfit—fresh off the release of its impressive debut full-length, Silent Seconds—was preparing listeners for its show with Cloud Nothings at The Back Room @ Colectivo by putting out a music video that was shot at the band’s practice space. Of course, a lot has changed in the world since that video came out in January.

Since the band is unable to practice together for the foreseeable future, Flat Teeth singer-guitarist Nik Stoehr decided to work through his feelings during this period of quarantine and social distancing by writing and recording what he calls a “snapshot in time.” His demo, “Comatose,” is a reflection of the uncertainty and isolation that he (and so many others) are dealing with right now.

The raw and emotionally exposed demo—which Stoehr says might become a full-fledged Flat Teeth song at a later time—got an equally downtrodden and dreary video pairing thanks to visuals of rain-soaked and vacant Milwaukee landscapes that were shot by artist and photographer Samer Ghani. Stay safe, stay inside, stay positive, and watch the video for “Comatose” below.
