Here’s one of the most unusual video+song pairings you’ll see all year, from NYC’s Guards. “Silver Lining” the song, of course, is ear candy of the highest caliber, with syrupy vocal harmonies and decadent melodies, while the video is almost stomach churning, showing the band superimposed over various close up shots of a mouth eating (or rather sucking up and spitting back out) various foodstuffs off of (and onto) a glass table. Wow. We’ve got the band’s own Kaylie Church to thank for the imagery, as she directed the video herself… which, I suppose, could be the neat silver lining here. Horrible pun intended.
In Guards We Trust is out Feb 5th 2013 on Black Bell Records.
