Is this a short film or just a music video?!
planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida
18 November 2008
When this short began, I was expecting the usual short film--after all,
that's where it's listed on IMDb. However, soon I realized that this
was really a music video--and I thought IMDb didn't list them.
Regardless of what exactly it is, one thing is clear--I really liked
the music and the video. I have never heard of the Southern Backtones
and they seem like goths, a grunge band and Southern rock all rolled
into one with this song--and it had a really haunting sound that really
hooked me as I never have heard anything like this before.
Now before you read any more, understand that I am a 44 year-old school
teacher who likes heavy metal and classical (I know this makes little
sense) and perhaps the target audience (significantly younger than me,
I am sure) might not enjoy it as much. I just thought the song was
great--so interesting that I then checked them out on Rhapsody AND plan
on playing one of their songs to my high school students tomorrow to
find out if they, too, like the sound.
As for the video portion, the film was shot in a grocery store and was
nice--though still limited by the fact that it was essentially a music
video. Still, for a music video it was great and I was sure impressed.
By the way, Rhapsody lists the group's genre as "psychobilly"! I've
never heard that term before and may never again!
