Video: Genders – “Something to Get You By”

When I hear Genders’ “Something To Get You By”, I can’t help but envision a beautiful, yet unkept storm, brewing through an intermingling of dreamy guitar tones, moody vocals, and unexpected dynamic swells.  It feels like the release of a turmoil, the shaking off of some kind of inner, lurking anxiety, or an escape from a bad dream.

 

While colored by energetic drum-fills, lethargic vocal melodies, and directed disarray, this intimate video showcases the undeniable chemistry of Genders and their distinctive sound.  Rather than getting lost in the clouds of contemplation and confusion, “Something To Get You By” brings us the light and energy to rise above the chaos and commotion.
