Deer Tick Strum Sweetly on Heartbroken 'Big House'

Last year's 'Negativity' album spawns a fittingly pained video

Providence saloon shit-kickers Deer Tick are back with a new video for "Big House," a quieter number from their rock-solid 2013 platter Negativity. The clip above is pretty frills-free — a pileup of images colored by late-night neon glow and the occasional exploding rocket. We see a lot of band boss John McCauley, strumming as he sings about a certain someone who's done him wrong: "It's a deep hole that you've dug with all your lyin'." Intermittent shots of a female figure suggests that his scorn is romantic at its root. If that's the case, the man's no doubt in a better headspace these days, having been wed to Vanessa Carlton by Stevie Nicks in December. For some heavier spleen-venting though, check out Deervana's full-album cover of Nirvana's In Utero.
