Loney Dear's music makes for great, introspective companion pieces. Maybe it's his preferences for tunes that are light and airy, filling sonic pools with a sort of warm, whimsical wash of atmosphere. It's easy to dive in to...which I think is what makes his new video for "Loney Blues" so poignant. Here we have the sad somber tale of a masked and tattered individual, lost in Brooklyn's isolating slabs of asphalt and concrete. Yet, unexpected connections are made -- with a cat, with a visual of Emil Svanngen (Loney Dear) singing on an abandoned tv, with a lady who absolutely loses it when she sees his '"face" -- making it somewhat possible to leap into this characters' shoes, feeling his emotions, empathizing with his well-being (or lack thereof), and hoping his luck will change.
