Video Premiere: Evenings "Babe"
- Words: Brad Stabler
Friends of Friends newcomer Evenings (a.k.a. Nathan Broaddus) has had a long, strange journey to get where he is now, a trek that was mostly summarized in our Bubblin' Up feature back in April. Released earlier this year, his debut full-length, Yore, was a hodge-podge of tunes culled from his previous EPs, with the faded romance of "Babe" being one of the record's standout cuts. And now, we're treated to a video for that track from visual artist The Great Nordic Sword Fights. The visuals for "Babe" lean heavily on Evenings' already fleshed-out aesthetic, marrying glitched, decomposing images of figures pushing and pulling along with the tranquil, organ-laced walk of the music.
