I don’t feel attached to this name. My favorite song off Bad Suns’ debut LP Language & Perspective just got its visual accompaniment and the result is a socially relevant and emotionally ravaging video. Directed by Daniel “Cloud” Campos, the video explores the story of a transgender protagonist through expertly crafted choreography that takes us through depression, suicide and […]
