See Lower Dens’ Minimal New Video for ‘Brains’

From the Baltimore folkgaze outfit's forthcoming debut on Ribbon Music, 'Nootropics'

When Lower Dens’ Jana Hunter set out to write Nootropics, her Baltimore folk-gaze crew’s forthcoming full-length (and Ribbon Music debut), she opted to start with a keyboard instead of a guitar, just as an exercise. “Brains,” the minimal but seismic first listen from that full-length still features some guitar strings, but it’s a markedly different animal from anything Hunter’s offered to date. She’s actually front and center for the Tristan Patterson-directed clip for “Brains” below, and what appears to be static is anything but.
