Califone Release New Video for “Giving Away The Bride”

All My Friends Are Funeral Singers, Califone’s most recent album opens with a deconstruction called “Giving Away The Bride.” Deep gutteral tones open the song like some lost leviathan rising from the depths. Slowly more elements are introduced often distorted to begin with, but slowly shaking off the murk and muck as the song progresses. Three minutes in a piano finally breaks through like the sun peaking out from behind the clouds. It’s simple and understated, but cast against the other elements of the song the piano rings with stark clarity, creating a juxtaposition of deep and infinite beauty. Today we’re happy to share a new video for “Giving Away The Bride.” Directed by Amy Cargill, the video weaves together a carefully edited collage of test signals, grainy video clips, animations, textures, sculptures, shapes and patterns. Once again, simple elements are activated in such away that they move beyond their normal limitations and given a purpose greater than their individual parts.

For those of you in the Bay Area, Califone will be taking up residence there in October. October 16-17 Califone will be participating in the Mill Valley Film Festival (specific show times and details TBA) and October 18 Califone will perform at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco.
