    I wasn't surprised when I read that Carroll has played shows with bands like Dr. Dog, Whitney, Kevin Morby, and Tennis, because they're music fits pretty damn perfect with that scene. With a slight psychedelic tinge, the band offers indie rock that is, for some unknown reason, extremely comforting. "Red Giant" off of their new album As Far As Gardens Go, which is entirely self-produced by the band, is the kind of song you'd want to listen to while you're looking at the rain pour down from the comfort of your own bed, or while you're sitting on the porch on a summer evening as the air drifts. The video that comes along with it, which we're premiering here today, feeds into the song's nostalgic warmth. Hues of orange and red flood the background while the members play their instruments and we see some shots of a party that makes us feel like we're back in our teenage years at a grungy basement show.

    The band told Baeble about the video, "'Red Giant' was always one of our collective favorites from our last record, As Far As Gardens Go, and we felt like it deserved a visual companion. We love how the song creates a lush and cinematic environment so we set out to capture just that. Shot during a single night in the streets of Philadelphia, the video features Brian Hurlow (vox/synth) of Carroll singing and wandering through neon landscapes. The video explores themes of time warp and space travel while maintaining an intentional visual focus and glowing color palette."
