Indie rock four-piece Maitland is gearing up for a big headlining show at Johnny Brenda’s, and just released a new video for their song “Luna” that warns of the dangers of environmental consumption and vulnerability.

The beautiful soundscape that Maitland has managed to weave through this video only enhances the visually stunning scene. The recurring mantra-esque chorus of “If you were my spring I’d drink you up, drop for drop”carries the heaviest builds of the song, and paired with the endless motion of interpretive dancer Amanda Miller wrapped in a white dress makes for such a pleasing visual. The entirety of the video takes place both inside an empty house and out in the middle of a forest, and we see these scenes through the use of cinematographer Jay Miller’s tasteful drone work with sweeping shots of landscapes.

Bassist Alex Hines describes “Luna” as holding “a bit of a deeper message. Touching on the frailty of our environment and the world’s infatuation with endless consumption. There are sort of 3 ‘mindsets’ that we were trying to convey through the video: 1. Vulnerability, suffocation, and the need to escape something 2. The dreamlike satisfaction of taking advantage of the world we live in 3. The search for something greater than the physical experience of life.”

Maitland will be playing Johnny Brenda’s on November 9th with Abi Reimold and Square Peg Round Hole; tickets and more information on the show are available at the XPN Concert Calendar.

You can watch the dreamlike “Luna” below, and download their 2017 record Glimpse at Bandcamp.
