Filmed entirely at the Phoenix Theater in Petaluma, CA, the idea for Cass McCombs‘ video for the first single from his forthcoming LP Catacombs [June 8 UK / July 7 US on Domino] was based on characters from an original screenplay written by McCombs and director Aaron Brown. Brown himself playing a “Demiurge”, a supernatural being that controls time and space, as well as the actions of McCombs and Ms. Karen Black.
In the words of Aaron Brown, director:
“It was really inspiring working with friends and collaborators which allowed for a lot to happen in a little amount time, and to try out different ideas inspired by our original script. Karen, of course, was an inspiration and joy and has a spectacular camera presence that she carries wherever she goes. I hope the video makes people want to listen to the song a lot, it’s both deep and playful and I hope the video adds a third dimension to form some kind of trinity. We listened to that song about 50 times that day and I like it more than ever.”
