Happy Monday. Small Black are bringing this week in with a brand new video for their song “Free At Dawn.” Premiering along with an exclusive interview at Interview Magazine, the video was directed by Yoonha Park and inspired by Hollis Frampton’s experimental 1970′s film Zorns Lemma. “Free At Dawn” stands as an ode to Brooklyn, capturing beautiful shots of the city and all on 16mm film.
Small Black’s Limits of Desire is officially out on May 14, but you can pre-order the album now! Head to SC Distribution for the deluxe bundle (pictured below), which includes: the album on both CD and limited-edition white vinyl, 12×12″ print with artist portraits (for the first 200 orders), 17×22″ glossy poster and a digital download code redeemable April 30. The record is also available at iTunes and Amazon!
