there’s no word yet on a follow-up album to gem club’s immensely poignant in roses, but there is this haunting, pastoral music video for “speech of foxes” in the meantime.  the ben phillippo-directed clip initially popped up during 2015’s year-end list season, causing some regrettable oversight on our end.  like its aural counterpart, the video for “speech of foxes” is profoundly introspective, with phillippo masterfully obscuring the line between metaphor and reality as the central character cleanses himself of his past.  it’s as therapeutic as it is heartbreaking.  spend some time with “speech of foxes” below.
