The Black Angels premiered a new video for “An Occurrence at 4507 South Third Street” today. The gritty video, directed by Kelsey Rose Stark and produced by Ace & Son Moving Picture Co., examines the suspension of time. In the clip, a woman falls following a struggle; the result is an exploration of life and what can transpire within that final instant, as she sees the various ghouls of everyday life while spiraling down to her final breath. The directors took their inspiration from both the song’s allusions to the Ambrose Bierce short story An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge, which deals with similar themes, as well as iconic psychedelic imagery.
Guitarist Christian Bland invites listeners to accompany him on a sonic journey: “After roaming through the Indigo Meadow, the time has come to journey to the Clear Lake Forest, where 7 tales of diamonds, executioners, and other strange occurrences await underneath the crystal waves lapping in the lake.”
