Small Black have premiered the video for their new single, “No Stranger”. Created by Mandy Mandelstein and Addison Mehr, the video reveals itself slowly and in surprising ways. Two strangers notice each other on a train, but this is not a simple boy-meets-girl story. The “what-if” fantasy (what if I said hello? what if we went on a road trip?) folds in on reality and slowly unravels into wanton destruction and debauchery.
This year has been a busy one for Small Black; the band played several high-profile showcases at SXSW including Stubbs with Vampire Weekend, celebrated their record release with a packed house gallery show in Williamsburg, and saw the release of their own eponymous beer from Stillwater Artisanal. Currently on tour across the US with Heavenly Beat, the band will headline Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 30 before heading out on a fall run of dates with STRFKR. A full list is below.
