Video of The Day: CHAMPS
I love a good cinematic video, and the clip for "Red Star" definitely fits the bill. The song is yet another triumph from CHAMPS, a song that's full of a gentle, ghostly gracefulness. The song's emotional inspiration of "longing, patience, and devotion through trying circumstances" is quite poignant.
The bittersweetness and sense of yearning found in "Red Star" are captured well in the video's moody coastal scenes, beginning and ending with sea and sky.
Look for "Red Star" on the long-awaited CHAMPS record The Hard Interchange, out on BMG later this month.
