TUFT – Spools (Official Music Video)
L.A.’s TUFT just released a new video for Spools and it is all kinds of wonderful. Directed by Ernie Gilbert, the video opens with lead vocalist Casey Trela running fearfully down a lonely stretch of desert asphalt. What he is running from we can’t be sure, but in the end it doesn’t really matter. The anxiousness has taken root. You’re drawn in.
But as visually striking as the video is, it wouldn’t be half as compelling without TUFT’s trademark harmonies and their uncanny ability to match catchy hooks and thoughtful lyrics. This is a band that has always had the ability to write great music, and they certainly have. Yet, listening to their latest effort, Look Look, reveals a more polished, confident trio. One capable of straddling the space between ‘experimental’ indie and ‘mainstream’ success. Best of all, they’ve done so without having to sacrifice any of the musical sensibilities that endeared them to so many of their fans. Kevin, Roxy and Casey seem to be finding their voice and that bodes well for fans of TUFT.
