Timber Timbre, who will perform at the Northside Festival, has recently released a new music video for their song “Grifting”, which will be a part of Sincerely, Future Pollution, which is out through City Slang.
The video was directed, animated and produced by Elenor Kopka. This black and white video has a strange animated story that focuses on three cards and three characters surrounding the table. Each card placed on the table shows a reality but also gives a bad omen. The video can be watched below.
According to the Fader, Over email, Kopka recalled the images that first came to her mind when she first listened to the song. “‘Grifting’ instantly made me think of a swampy seaside village, set somewhere in the 1980s, and a group of people meeting up for a shady basement match of poker. Later on I got very inspired by tarot imagery and the aesthetics of fortune telling and tried to construct a game packed with that sort of occult symbolism. The video ended up becoming an obscure card game session that brings back unwanted memories.“ Timber Timbre’s Taylor Kirk wrote “I don’t think I can even sing the song now without conjuring these images.”
