Small Black gets all Missed Connections in their “No Stranger” video (playing a free show at Morgan’s Pier on 6/26)
In the rambunctious new video for Small Black‘s “No Stranger,” a glance shared by two strangers on a train sparks a fantasy that has the pair partaking in some “wanton destruction and debauchery” after road-tripping to a lake. It might remind you of this Rhye video…almost shot-for-shot at some points (a pastoral car ride, a concluding bonfire). The narrative this time tells a classic case of missed connections fit for a Craigslist post – an immediate attraction, the lack of time to act on it followed by the indulgent wondering of “what if.”
“No Stranger” comes from the Brooklyn electronic dream pop outfit’s sophomore record Limits of Desire LP, recently released through Jagjaguwar. Small Black will play a free show at Morgan’s Pier with Heavenly Beat on June 26th. More information can be found here.
