As if the dazzling, sprawling sonic atmospheres created by Brooklyn band Parrot Dream weren't enough, their new video for "Light Goes (In Mines)" is an ode to the complicated familial relationships -- something all queer people can identify with. "The song reflects on the struggles within relationships between father and child, and how so often much goes uncommunicated and unresolved," the band tells OUT.
Starring Kai Pelton, a co-facilitator of the TransGenerational Theatre Project, the video has been created in conjunction with a show benefiting the TransWomen of Color Collective, which took place in New York on the 16th.
"In the video, we see the protagonist moving through and occupying different spaces, both physical and emotional," says Parrot Dream. "The cityscape mirrors the protagonist's state as they experience a range of emotions connected to grief and loss."
