Director Lara Gallagher on the video:
When I first heard the song, I was struck by how specific it was—missing someone’s BONES. Not their hair or their smell or how much fun they are to be around, but their bones. Beyond my initial brainstorms involving dancing old ladies and milk, I thought about my favorite age group (girls in junior high) and just how weird and specific obsession at this age can be. It also got me thinking about how intangible and digital things have become, and how you can miss someone even if you technically can see them all the time. In this scenario, I think missing someone’s bones—the things that make them real and standing before you as opposed to on the internet or in your email—makes total sense.
“I Miss Your Bones” can be found on Hospitality’s masterful sophomore release Trouble, available on LP, CD, and digital in the Merge store.
The Brooklyn band hits the road later this month, including appearances at Merge 25 and Osheaga, and dates with Porches, Frankie Cosmos, and Merge fam Ex Hex.
