Spotlight | OKGB - In Shape - [Video]
OKGB return in fine form with a video for head-bobbing new single “In Shape.”
There is a vintage elegance to the stylized tableaus of director Henry Acteson. The track bounces with pop-tight percussion and lo-fi edge, while the video follows OKGB into hedonistic isolation. See the band bewildered by what they think they’ve spotted from the dilapidated tennis court, abandoning its trail to take full advantage of the pool, arriving finally in the den to drink in dim afternoon light. The demented poetic spirit of Carter Foreman croons hauntingly: “Is the pain worth the gain of being noticed?”
OKGB have spotted something promising just over the shoulder of their own languid youthfulness, and they’re tripping over themselves to get to it.
