Premiering today at Stereogum, the new Here We Go Magic video is the most recent work to come our way from long-time HWGM collaborators, filmmakers Nat Livingston Johnson & Gregory Mitnick of Peking. It’s for the single “Hard To Be Close,” off HWGM’s A Different Ship. Starring Chuck Stern of NYC Public Access show Roboshithead, the video follows three dudes (and their emotional rollercoaster) through a millenia of being stuck in an elevator. Enjoy above.

Here We Go Magic head back out on tour later this month with a free (with RSVP) show at Brooklyn Bowl. After a few dates on the East Coast, they’ll head to the Midwest for Midpoint Music Festival and to also tour with Andrew Bird. See all dates below.
