Turnover explore landscaping as a meditational act in new video for “Still In Motion”

A bubbly new visual off the band’s new album, Altogether.

November 06, 2019

Last week, Turnover returned with their fourth studio album, Altogether, a project packed with gauzy grooves perfectly built to lose oneself in. That's visualized in their humble new video for "Still In Motion," which approaches the art of lawn-mowing as a transcendental exercise. In an email to The FADER, director Mason Mercer explained a bit of how the video came together:

"[Austin Getz] told me the song is a reflection on the balance of living in the present, the possibilities of the future, and romanticizing the past. I’m not sure whether he studies it or not, but Austin has always seemed very zen-like to me. Lawn-mowing is not the first thing that comes to mind when discussing zen. Every summer growing up, my brother and I worked for our grandpa mowing countless lawns across the many small towns that surrounded us in the Ozarks. I always liked mowing, it helped me clear my mind. I’d be chewing gum, listening to music, and would eventually completely zone out while mowing.

The idea for this video was that a normal blue-collar worker had somehow landed the job of a lifetime, mowing heaven’s lawn. It’s an enormous task. Angels and visions of future beauty surround him. Maybe they inspire him to keep working hard, or maybe he doesn’t even notice them, either way he isn’t distracted in the slightest. He’s got work to do."
