At first glance, David Wax Museum's new, Shutter & String-directed video for "Harder Before It Gets Easier" bears a striking resemblance to the body-painted ballet of Gotye's ultra-viral "Somebody That I Used To Know" clip. But like the New England duo's "Mexo-American" folk hybrid, as covered in last year's SPIN feature on the 'New Stars of Americana, the video below is a far more exuberant, brightly colored affair, and Wax and bandmate Suz Slezak's body parts even double as accordion keys.
