Papercuts Go to the Zoo in 'Life Among the Savages' Video

Main man Jason Quever directed the clip, which serves the project's new LP of the same name

Papercuts returned this month with Life Among the Savages, the full-length follow-up to 2011's Fading Parade. Now, the recording project of San Francisco singer/songwriter/producer Jason Quever has birthed a music video for the new LP's lush title track. The clip maintains an intimate, homemade feel — fitting, since Quever directed the piece himself — by pairing dimly lit shots of domestic life with footage of a day spent at the zoo. (Life among the savages, indeed.) Occasionally, the camera drifts to an empty seashore just before sunset, giving the hazy, baroque-pop track the kind of dreamy visual button it deserves. Watch the video above, and scroll down for Papercuts' tour dates — Quever is kicking off a string of performances in San Diego tonight.

Papercuts tour dates:

May 22 - San Diego, CA @ Soda Bar
May 23 - Los Angeles, CA @ The Satellite
May 28 - Portland, OR @ Mississippi Studios
May 29 - Seattle, WA @ Tractor Tavern
May 31 - San Francisco, CA @ The Chapel
