Grant Pavol's macabre "Hair" video is a horrorshow vignette - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Singer-songwriter Grant Pavol releases his debut EP Okay next month on Shamir Bailey’s Accidental Popstar Records, and it’s a wistful collection of lyrical snapshots detailing Philadelphia life (and general life) from a late-teenage perspective. The new music video for “Hair,” released today, takes those visions and turns them sinister. Directed by Bailey, it’s dressed up in the macabre tones of a psychological thriller; somebody wakes up, tied to the bed. Somebody else walks up a flight of dimly lit stairs to bring them, tea, and then goes back downstairs to retrieve a hatchet. 

Paired with a minute and 47 second song, the story is over before it begins, but like the best horror films, the suggestion of violence is more distressing than violence itself might be.

Bailey and Pavol connected at DIY shows around Philly when Pavol was in his early teens, and more recently worked together to record Okay, which is out May 17th on Accidental Popstar (preorder the tape here). Watch the video below, and listen to “Vintage Clothes,” another song from the EP.
