Dueling photography is what you get with Hush Arbors‘ video for “Coming Home” off their recent Ecstatic Peace LP, Yankee Reality. First there’s the beautiful landscapes of mountains and hills and lakes from across the country (and possibly world). Then, the second photographic element is stop motion photography of the band fooling around in front of the screen on which the landscapes appear. It’s interesting, colorful, fun, and fits well with the song.
Hush Arbors’ Yankee Reality is upbeat and, in the vein of other Ecstatic Peace artists, capitalizes on an experimental folk-rock sound (with emphasis leaning toward rock). In comparison to their label-mates, Hush Arbors are a bit more melodic with pop-worthy vocals despite their folk-rock instrumentation.
