Video Premiere: Silver Columns "Brow Beaten"


Race-walking is no joke. However, you may have trouble keeping a straight face watching UK band Silver Columns' video for their new single, "Brow Beaten." Clocking in at almost nine minutes, director Kieran Evans takes up the subject of race-walking—a world-class sport in case you thought otherwise—and soundtracks a frail high-school boy's race-walking dreams to the hyper-pop that is the new Silver Columns' single. The video is actually a nice bit of photography, and you may even find yourself questioning your skepticism about race-walking's benefits towards the end. Silver Columns will release "Brow Beaten" November 29 on Moshi Moshi, backed by remixes from Optimo and Hot Chip's Joe Goddard, among others.
