For Esmé "250" (video)
Published Feb 06, 2014Last summer, Toronto's For Esmé released a self-titled debut album, and the closing cut "250" has now gotten its own music video.
The song is a slow, sparse piano ballad, and the accompanying video is similarly low-key. Filmed using an iPhone and directed by Spencer Cathcart, it consists of a single slow motion shot of purple-haired vocalist Martha Meredith singing against a forested background.
It's fairly uneventful until a wind machine picks up halfway through, and the vocalist ends up getting showered with sheets of paper. It's an effective accompaniment to the song, especially considering the low budget it was made on.
