Now that you’re all stuffed and hungover from Thanksgiving it’s the perfect time to pretty much do nothing and “turn your mind off for a while.” Why go out and fight the crowds on this traditional day of manic shopping (but if you do shop, buy from local businesses) when you can watch the latest video from Yawn Mower which we are premiering today? The band is really putting its best foot forward with “Broken Filaments”.
The Asbury Park fuzzed out power duo of Mike Chick and Biff Swenson is really firing on all cylinders these days. Over the years of releasing stellar singles and EPs they have honed their sound in a way that makes their songs both unique and embracing. Back in September they released their debut full length album To Each Their Own Coat, their strongest work to date.
The heaviness of “Broken Filaments” make it one of the best tracks on the record. The band has always made entertaining videos that play on the dynamism of the duo and are often inventive and whimsical. With this one the band go a bit avant-garde. If they wanted to explore this genre the video is a step in the right direction. Literally. “This video was Yawn Mower’s tribute to Kenna’s “Freetime” and Dirty Vegas’ “Days Go By” music videos, plus a splash of The IG dance trio Let It Happen. Quentin Tarantino would be proud of the amount of feet that pop up in here,” says Chick. “Jessica Totaro choreographed the dances for her students at Grunin Performing Arts Academy. Biff directed, shot and edited the video along with help from Melissa McLaughlin.”
You can catch Yawn Mower in all their full band live glory this Saturday at the House of Independents in Asbury Park when they wrap up their Northeast tour. Also on the bill is Echo Plum, Dentist and Surf Haven.
