Elison Jackson wanders around a cosmic town in new “Trashman” video
Elison Jackson makes a small town seem surreal in the psychedelic-inspired video for “Trashman.” The song is one of seven from their debut album, Good Deeds, which was released on August 13 via Free Bird Records. The band, which features Philly’s Sam Perduta on lead vocals, had the album recorded and mixed at Uniform Recordings by Jeff Ziegler.
“Trashman” strolls along at a laid-back pace. The relaxed track seems semi-ironic as Perduta reflects on death scares, nightmares, and charades, but despite the intensity, the band stays chilled out; there’s a charm to their folky indie-rock that comes from the fact that they’re in no rush.
The music video echos this sentiment, as the duo wanders around town with an upright bass and guitar, awash in cosmic filtering effects. It seems idyllic as they mess around by the train tracks and have a backyard jam session. Even if they’re a bit far-removed from reality, at least they’re having a good time.
