Video: Small Black "Photojournalist"

New York chill-poppers Small Black have sent over this video for their dreamy indie-casio-pop tune, "Photojournalist" (the MP3 for which we posted quite a few months back), from their debut LP, New Chain. The video features a rather abstract storyline that involves a few girls (most likely the same girl at different ages?) buying fruit, opening a locker, applying make-up, and visiting an aquarium. A single symbolic bouquet floating in shallow water and some slick image overlaying leaves this one pretty open to interpretation. We're leaning towards the coming-of-age-story side of things, but that's the beauty of ambiguous art—you can make of it what you want. New Chain (which you can read our review of here) is out now on Jagjaguwar. Check the band's upcoming tour dates on their way to SXSW after the jump.
