More than timeless, Carson McHone’s third record and second on Loose, Still Life, is timely, inherently modern, and immediate. It arrives February 25th, but today, McHone previews a new track from the album with a new music video.
The punchy sax and tumbling toms of “Only Lovers” play into the danger of fooling yourself. The background vocals are like a playground taunt, buoyant but knowing. Listen now and watch the accompanying music video directed by McHone and shot by Daniel Romano.
Regarding “Only Lovers,” McHone references this line from Carson McCullers’ novel The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter: “Maybe when people longed for a thing that bad the longing made them trust in anything that might give it to them.”
Check out the music videos for Still Life’s previous singles, “Hawks Don’t Share” and the album’s title track.
