Springtime Carnivore releases new video
Today, Springtime Carnivore releases the visual accompaniment for her song “Midnight Room”. The video is the work of animator Kevin Andrews, who created a series of painterly scenes for the song.
“I usually make a record imagining that it could be the soundtrack to a specific place, whether imagined or real,” says Springtime Carnivore’s Greta Morgan. “‘Midnight Room’ has a starry and surrealist landscape, and Kevin helped create that world visually.”
“Midnight Room” is the title track of Springtime Carnivore’s latest album, which is available now through Autumn Tone Records. Springtime Carnivore will be on tour next month, opening shows for The Head and the Heart before a string of headlining dates and a show with Jenny Lewis at Chicago’s Thalia Hall.
In the interest of achieving a more cohesive sound for Midnight Room, Morgan reached out to producer Chris Coady, whose work with Future Islands, Beach House and The Orwells she’d admired. “To me, Chris’s greatest gift as a producer is creating a sonic palette for an album that really brings their songs to life,” she says. “I wanted the whole thing to feel like you’re looking through a cobalt blue glass, and to get textures that almost feel like being able to see stars in the sky. I wanted it to have this very velvety midnight blue purity to the sound, and I feel like the synthesizers that we used and a lot of the guitar tones we used evoked that kind of visual texture.”
