BELLS≥ Let Go of Emotional Baggage In ‘No More Water’ Video
Putting a new spin on the ‘Pulp Fiction‘ “mystery box” thing, Brooklyn instrumental rockers BELLS≥ explore the idea of letting go and making peace with demons in their new ‘No More Water’ video. Filmed by friend Michael Fodera, who offered up his lens at the “perfect time,” according to guitarist Stephen Shodin, the clip centers on three individuals whose emotional baggage takes the form of floating balls of light.
“I wanted to illustrate that we all have things we know weigh us down, and yet we hold onto them, out of sentimentality, out of anger or guilt,” Fodera says, adding that he wanted the characters’ burdens to be “abstractions, so viewers can reach their own conclusions about what they hold onto and, ultimately, what they need to let go of.”
Sequenced last on the group’s latest album, ‘Solutions, Silence, or Affirmations,’ ‘No More Water’ is a delicate winder with plenty of punch — just the type of tune you want to hear when going into the woods to jettison your deepest, darkest regrets.
