Video Premier: Seattle band Dark Smith share new music video "WAITING"

May 23, 2019

Dark Smith

Today marks the release of the new album Degressive from Seattle band Dark Smith. This is the first full length release from the band that released their Prehystaria EP in last year. 
Not only is today the release of their new album, but here at The End we also get to premier the brand new Dark Smith video for their song “Waiting.”

"Waiting" could have easily stood alone as just a great song on a rad album. However Dark Smith is making sure that the art of expanding their work to the screen is very much alive and well in their new music video for the track. 

The video was shot at local DIY space Love City Love and directed by Rajah Makonnen. Dark Smith and Makonnen create a whole world that I want to know so much more about inside a small concrete room where they are forced to perform the same song over and over again seemingly for eternity while chained to their instruments and monitored through foggy glass and vintage screens by anonymous onlookers. I would watch ten episodes of American Horror Story built around this exact premise. 

 

You can help Dark Smith celebrate the release of their new album tomorrow night (Saturday 5/25) at The Central Saloon.
