We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Associations’ new music video for their song “Coyote” (watch below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP, which will officially released on July 29th through Geneva Records.
Associations’ music is like a burst of nervous energy. The songs are raucous, rambunctious, reflective and painfully self-aware. As Associations’ sole member, Shane Conard pairs confessional lyrics with oft-jolting guitar riffs to create an energetic, yet sobering listening experience. Drawing comparisons to Jeff Rosenstock and Frank Turner, Associations is up next in a long line of artists to make you scream your insecurities with a smile on your face.
Of the song and it’s accompanying video, Conard says “’Coyote’ is about trying to find something, or more specifically someone that just isn’t around. It’s also about accepting that fact. The video is a compilation of scenes from a trip I took through the southwest around the recording of the record. My girlfriend and I spent a week and a half traversing through a lot of different environments, and encountered everything from snow, to incredibly dry deserts. That trip provided me with a lot of time to think, and I believe it gave me a great deal of perspective on the song, and the record itself. I chose to use raw footage kind of showcasing the trip because I think it shows a sense of longing without necessarily needing the structure of flow of a story. Just a camera, my girlfriend, and myself, and a great deal of time to consider that longing.”
