PREMIERE: The Melancholic Beauty of Sam Pinkerton
    • WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15, 2015

    Melancholy is an emotion I tend to associate with lyrically driven bands -- The Cure, The National, Bright Eyes, etc. It's not that an artist can't sound melancholy with just their instruments; it's just a lot easier to utilize language than to capture an emotion in purely sonic terms. Despite the easier option, Sam Pinkerton has managed to achieve just that with sparse vocals and the cello of Kenneth Coca. We're premiering the video for "Part IV" today, and it tells the story of a lonely little girl, wandering through the forest and by a river with a doll, and even if it weren't for the beautifully shot video, the somber swell of Pinkerton's arrangement creates a vast world of loneliness and yearning. It's gorgeous, and it's worth taking the time to immerse yourself in this textured sonic landscape.
