watch the music video for elvis depressedly’s “bruises (amethyst)”

elvis depressedly released their latest full-length, new alhambra, earlier this month via run for cover records.  its nine tracks are all incredibly compact, clocking in at just over twenty minutes in total, and they’re strung together by audio samples that effortlessly weave in and around mat cothran’s distinctive vocal warbles.  one of the album’s strongest cuts is its second single, “bruises (amethyst),” and cothran shared the accompanying music video earlier tonight.  justin blackburn’s interpretation of the song is simple without being simplistic; its home-video quality aligns aesthetically with the band’s diy practices but it’s the sustained presence of inaudible conversations that really sells the production, as it mirrors cothran’s propensity to shroud seemingly basic concepts in sudden ambiguity and intrigue.  watch the video for “bruises (amethyst)” below.
