Gracing the cover of Brooklyn band Small Black's new record, a mysterious woman walks alone on the dunes at dusk, amid pockmarked sand. She's the subject of a found photo, one of many rescued with the warmth of a blow dryer and a fireplace, by singer Josh Hayden Kolenik after Hurricane Sandy flooded his family's Long Island home. The faded image offers clues and invites viewers to construct their own narrative, one that escapes even the picture's taker, Kolenik's father.

WATCH // Small Black Release Official Video for “Breathless”, On Tour In Europe

This week’s VEVO‘s Indie Wednesday brings the premiere of Small Black‘s new video for “Breathless”.

The cinematic string of vibrant images brings together multiple teenage visions of summer.
