This video by Christy Edwards of Brooklyn folk duo Christy and Emily is an eloquently composed silhouette animation, interspersed briefly, but frighteningly, but a lot of people running from something ominous. "105 & Rising" has an Apocalypse Now feel, both in sound and in vision, the latter made explicit by use of images from the final days of the Vietnam War. 105 is the emergency threshold of the human fever, though it could be just the heat outside. Either way, "& Rising" is not a good sign, and the song's got a wary strum to match the possible ensuing mayhem. Christy and Emily's debut is out today and they have a release party for it at The Stone in New York City December 9th. Details of all the players are after the jump.
