Video : Brazos : “How The Ranks Was Won”

New York-via-Austin trio Brazos just announced their signing to Dead Oceans, today. They will be releasing their sophomore LP Saltwater on May 28th via the sister label of Secretly Canadian and Jagjaguwar. You can watch the video for and listen to the first single from the album “How The Ranks Was Won”. Martin Crane explains the video concept below.

“‘How the Ranks Was Won’ is about a kid who finds the empty ship his ancestors came over on which is now a ghost ship. He boards it, and takes it back. It’s about taking charge of your memory and your past. I thought it would be funny to do that in modern life. In the video I get a text message from a memory (or maybe my cell phone is secretly trying to control me?), it consumes me, I ride the dreamworld, I come back, then the dreamworld rides me.”
