If you look past the swirling colors, this Camilla Padgitt-Coles-directed video for NYC folk-rock outfit Pigeons reveals a dancer pirouetting in slow motion. The song, the latest single from the band’s recent They Sweetheartstammers LP on Soft Abuse, feels kind of like an extended pirouette, too. A long, buzzing drone lays the foundation for a cyclical vocal mantra from founding member Wednesday Knudson, as haunting and deceptively aimless as Nico’s notorious cover of the “End” (a personal favorite). Put this one on when you won’t have to go anywhere for a while.
