Puppets Sex, Fight and Care for Each Other in Sweet Spirit's New Music Video





Puppets Sex, Fight and Care for Each Other in Sweet Spirit's New Music Video

After a thoroughly solid indie rock album release in 2015 with Cokomo, that was itself a quick follow-up to a spectacular split with influencer and fellow Austin rocker Britt Daniel of the legendary Spoon, few Austin bands enter this new year as hot as Sweet Spirit. To add fuel to that fire, the act has just released a new, gripping music video for Cokomo track “Baby When I Close My Eyes” that joins Anomalisa in the surprisingly fast-growing “Early 2016 Super Artsy and Emotional Puppet-Based Films” subsection of pop culture.

That upcoming movie with its realism+puppets thing is more of a touchstone to go with when understanding what hitting play on this music vid than something like the Muppets, because this here video is dark and serious, including a good, healthy heaping of violence both puppet on puppet and human on puppet.

Both the video and the track discuss modern life and its troubles, with director John Valley saying about the various storylines in the video, “We weren’t preoccupied with the three plots leading you to a final message, yet the characters all go through a life-altering experience and come out the other end scarred but still in love.”

Singer Sabrina Ellis says about it that “People will either love it or hate it and that excites me,” and you can decide for yourself which way it makes ya feel by taking a peep below.
