It's the album of the summer, but somehow, in the middle of a long, busy winter, I managed to make some art with a very special group of friends for the album Trouble Anyway by Rosali. Last week, we all watched excitedly as it made it's way out into the world via an incredible record-release show at Johnny Brenda's featuring many of the album's roster of special guests.
Though it's been a while since I shot an album cover, I've never made a music video before. Shot and directed with fellow experienced-photographer-but-new-videographer, Kait Privitera, over the course of two evenings and a couple of our homes and neighborhood locations, the video is simple– yet not simplistic. Like the song itself and the stripped-down album art, the vibe is a both tough and vulnerable; revealing, but removed.
The song and the album also just got some kind words from Pitchfork:
We worked to craft visuals and narrative that also play with the idea of expression though the small details; a rich interior world told through an evening spent being alone, but not necessarily being lonely.
