Watch New Crystal Stilts Video

Track taken from new album due Sept. 17.

 By Blurt Staff

 It’s the video for “Star Crawl” directed by Daniel Fetherston, from the upcoming Crystal Stilts album on Sacred Bones, Nature Noir. The band states, “We took off one morning to go capture random sweeping scenes. Rivers and valleys, trees and ponds… in a word, nature. I guess the album has that feel as opposed to the earliest Crystal Stilts material, which could refer to the cities, the subways, thoughts and frustrations that are kept inside oneself. This song is perhaps about doing grandiose things, but knowing it’s not in you. The long sweeping shots of the Hudson Valley, and elsewhere at least somewhat resemble the scale of those claims.”

 Crystal Stilts formed in 2003 in New York City by Brad Hargett (vocals) and JB Townsend (guitar) and are currently joined by Andy Adler (bass), Keegan Cooke (drums), Kyle Forester (keys).
