Published Feb 04, 2019After releasing his A Short Story About a War album late last year, Shad has returned with a new video for "The Stone Throwers (Gone in a Blink)."
Directed by Matthew Progress, the clip was entirely shot on camcorder. As he explained in a statement, Progress sought to "provide a unique look at the classic narrative of struggle and marginalization" that the song addresses.
"I was interested in using the monotony of the big city commute as a lens to examine the rage, vulnerability and isolation felt by many people of color navigating modern society," he added. "We set up a camera in an empty white room and left each of our actors alone. They were directed to channel real moments of rage and desperation they've experienced, and then react with no filter. It was an intense, cathartic experience for everyone involved."
A Short Story About a War is available now through Secret City Records. Shad will tour Western Canada later this month, and you can find the dates for that here.
