Ezra Furman unveils colourful stop-start video for ‘Restless Year’
After taking our Track of the Day slot a couple of weeks ago with his comeback single ‘Restless Year’, Ezra Furman has now unveiled the song’s video.
It comes from Furman’s upcoming second album, which is yet to have a title and will be released via Bella Union this summer.
The video features Furman milling around Suburbia in a stop-motion filming style, taking him on a slightly disorientating tour of his local neighbourhood with more costume changes than any other production we have seen this year.
Speaking about the thinking behind the video, the man himself said: “This is pretty much an accurate depiction of what my life is like. Zipping around the San Francisco Bay Area, feeling insane, looking amazing. Reading, dancing, falling, encountering death.
“This is how I live, moving wildly and freely through a world that has nothing to do with me. Special thanks to the fabulous Restless Year Dancers, the good people at Kayo Books, and Death, who as always was available at short notice.”
