That feeling when all of your friends leave for school around fall and there's nothing to do in your hometown just got very real in DEAR-GOD's new video "Bitter Winter." The excellent B-rate horror follows the Brampton artist as he gets sucked into a bad dream by a devil where he witnesses horrible, unspeakable things with just the right level of special effects and cheap props. The grainy visuals are a match for DEAR-GOD's hopeless lyrics and hardcore grunge production.
DEAR-GOD, who directed the video, alluded to the snuff-level production on the visuals in an email: "We shot this whole thing on my dad’s old Sony camera that I recently restored. It was pretty much all shot in and around my house in Brampton. I wanted to see what kind of crazy shit we could make with the most minimal budget and crew."
"Bitter Winter" is DEAR-GOD second single, after "The Burbs."
