Small Black Release New Video, Tour to South By Southwest

Check out the new video above for Small Black’s “Photojournalist” from their latest album New Chain. While filming the video, Small Black and director Yoonha Park, played with the idea of photo vs. memory. The band and director spent a full day shooting with one actress and followed up a few weeks later with a different actress, attempting to recreate the exact same shoot from memory without referring to the earlier footage.

In other news, Small Black is heading to South By Southwest this year, and will be playing dates with Cults, Sun Airway, and Toro Y Moi on their way to the festival. Check out the full tour dates after the jump.

New Mp3 from Small Black

JAG174

Last week we announced the first details of Small Black’s first full-length album New Chain due out Oct. 26 in the U.S. and Oct. 25 in the U.K. We are now proud to share the first single “Photojournalist.” The song begins with a lilting sliding beat before dropping into a gorgeous moment of ambient wash. As the lyrics kick in with lead singer Josh Kolenik repeating the refrain “rise up again, like a ghost” the song does just that, growing more concrete in form as Josh’s vocals strengthen, are supported by a chorus, and drums come up in the mix. Layers are added until the song hits maximum velocity only to disappear even quicker than it began.
