The duo premieres a stop-motion clip for their debut album’s shortest song.

June 23, 2015

Smack in the middle of the summer's most important coming-of-age album, Girlpool's Before The World Was Big, you'll find a short song called "Magnifying Glass." At 38 seconds long, the track is built around a couple notes and some dizzy teenage poetry, yelped in unison: You love me til I'm frightened/ I wanna hold the world inside my head/ and all those passing feelings/ they never told me what they meant. Today, the Los Angeles-bred, Philly-based telepathic teens are sharing a radiant, stop-motion video for the song. Premiering above, the clip is sweet like summer and brings a few of the song's more vivid metaphors to life.


"We are honored to have worked with our inspiring and dear friend Craig Scheihing on a video that we feel encapsulates our song," the duo told FADER in an email. "Thanks to all the wonderful people who took part in this video. Creating with people is thrilling and special." Girlpool's full-length debut is out now on Wichita Recordings.
