Chicago-based indie rock band Slow Pulp have treated fans with the release of the music video for their latest release, Track. The visual is completely illustrated by artist Corinne James, and takes its inspiration from band member Emily Massey’s relationship with her mother.
James shares of the inspiration: “It’s inspired by this beautiful familial love that can sometimes get lost in translation when life creates circumstances that we have no control over. It’s also inspired by a trip I took to the river, I watched a bird catch a fish and fly away with it. I just wonder what fish think when they get pulled out of water. Are they scared of dying or are they in awe of the trees and the land below? It’s about love and about fear and about the exciting people we meet and the places we get to go while we are feeling both of those emotions.”
Massey further elaborates on the track, sharing: “I was waiting for the train one day to go home to my parents. There was an older woman who was also waiting on the track and she reminded me of my late Grandmother who I had not thought of in a while. She passed away of Alzheimers when I was in high school. My mother often worries she is going to get it as well. The song acts as a letter attempting to reassure her that she will never be forgotten even if she forgets.”
Track is out now! Watch the music video below.
