UNDER THE RADAR: Timber Timbre – “Grifting”

UNDER THE RADAR: Timber Timbre – “Grifting”.

Visuals from the Toronto freak-folk group’s new album.

In the music video for Timber Timbre’s “Grifting,”tarot cards have souls of their own. Director Elenor Kopka animates a strange and smoky tarot session that comes to life, and the cards have brought bad omens with them. The grave atmosphere is ideal for the track: Taylor Kirk’s voice ascends anxiously, like it’s walking up one of Escher’s staircases, going up and up before moving onto a different plain, urged on by the song’s steely, funky organ.
