Video: Single Lash - Recurring Dream

Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society...
In the past two months I've had the extraordinary pleasure of seeing Single Lash live three times, as they're quickly becoming a staple favorite live act in Austin for me. The band recently premiered a new video via our brethren in bloggery, Portals. The stunning clip for Almost Breathing's opening track "Recurring Dream" is directed by Melissa Cha; and if that name sounds familiar it's because she's the same genius mind behind Dylan Ettinger's "Wintermute" video from last year. The video perfectly reflects the dark and brooding nature of "Recurring Dream" and the weight of stress that such a concept can bring, without stressing the viewer or implying too disparaging an emotion. It's tough to find the balance between beauty and angst, but Cha seems to have quite the knack for it. Check out more from Single Lash's Almost Breathing LP below.
