WATCH // New Video for Here We Go Magic’s “Hard To Be Close”

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.
