Watch Gauntlet Hair’s New Video for “Keep Time”


We have a brand new music video for Gauntlet Hair’s “Keep Time” that premiered today at SPIN.com. Directed and produced by Bernardo Pantoja and Skyler Stevenson for Wooden Lens, the video features mirror-eyed ghouls that come to live at night. The ghouls are hunted by another entity and prowl the streets (shot in SE industrial-sector Portland). The goal for Wooden Lens was to “echo the beautiful texture and disturbing tone” of the song, and color me disturbed – this video is so scary and cool!

Gauntlet Hair was a huge critical highlight of CMJ 2011, praised by PopMatters, Pretty Much Amazing, Brooklyn Vegan, and Stereogum. After the jump, watch two live videos of Gauntlet Hair performing at The Fader Fort.
