Singer-songwriter Evan Weiss is due to drop his debut full-length album, Still Ripping, on October 15 through recently relaunched label, Psychedelic Judaism.
Watch the video for “The Question,” the third single taken from Weiss’ forthcoming album, below:
On the track and its accompanying video, Weiss states:
“I kind of think of ‘The Question’ as a punk-rock soul ballad, straightforward and raw. For the rest of the record, Sam (KS, producer) and I kept it pretty minimal with instrumentation, but for this one, we said, ‘Fuck it!’ and went all out with the horn section. It’s melancholy, but it feels triumphant. The song is somewhat of a broken-hearted lament—with a wink, and I really like how the video ends on a hopeful, celebratory note.
“I wanted to make one more video leading up to the album release, but I was struggling with ideas. Eli Pearl (director) is one of my best friends and a really creative dude. I asked him if he had any ideas, and he sent over this treatment. I thought it nailed the sentiment of the song while telling a story of its own. I’m lucky to have a community of creative, talented friends we were able to call upon to work on the video with us. CJ (Miller) is amazing in it; Nick (Pillot) and Alexandra (Skye) brought the bears to life way better than we dreamed of.”
