Ever since that all important release day back in January, Tim Presley's White Fence is out there, feedin' Larry's Hawk. This bird just can't seem to get un-famished! It's this search for satiation that is the underlying theme of the new "Forever Chained" video (directed by Sean McAnulty and Alex McLaren), which by the way, brings the total of visual accompaniments for I Have To Feed Larry's Hawk to five - a generous output that further illuminates the enigmatic messages of Tim's startling new music.
Premiering on Juxtapoz this morning, the video for "Forever Chained" indeed juxtaposes a brave new world upon the soul while deadening aspects of our unlucky old one. Using stunning, stop-motion claymation, the wonders of the natural world spring forth throughout "Forever Chained", as creatures of the wild parade around an ever-shifting array of seductive color. Cycling through growth, evolution, decay and destruction, with pharmaceuticals materializing from all matter, even humans make appearances to vomit endless links of chain and bile. What's a creature to do, other than strive to survive? Tim's assured songwriting hand drives "Forever Chained" with winsome pop power, guaranteed to hook itself deep inside your mind until you're addicted. Here's to scratching the itch that does not scratch, and falling into the audio-video experience that is "Forever Chained"!
