'A Night on the Town' With The Dear Hunter
  • THURSDAY, JUNE 25, 2015

  • Posted by: Don Saas

When we had the pleasure of catching alternative prog icons the Dear Hunter at the Gramercy last month, our writer/photographer was taken on a wild ride. He'd never listened to the band before that night but their fusion of prog and touches of folk won him over instantly. And for the Dear Hunter's legions of fans, the charm of Casey Crescenzo and crew was no surprise. And when we had the opportunity to premiere the lyric video for the band's new single, "A Night on the Town," I knew I was going to say yes.

Ambitious lyric videos have been one of the unexpected themes of 2015, and The Dear Hunter's outing for "A Night on the Town" might be the most ambitious yet. With an aesthetic that is equal parts the Jazz Age and Art Deco, "A Night on the Town" fuses The Dear Hunter's slinking, complex rhythms and guitar melodies with a frenetic panoply of thematically cohesive images. There's even a moment where the visuals of the track get downright Malick-ian.

The track is the first single from the latest entry, Act IV: Rebirth In Reprise, in the band's continuing concept album series. Watch the video and then check out the band's extensive tour dates below.
