PREMIERE: Glacier Veins Revisit Their Recent Tour in “Perception” Video
The World You Want to See single soundtracks footage of their U.S. tour with Have Mercy.
While the world we want to see right now is one in which Portland punks Glacier Veins are able to get back out on the road to support their Equal Vision Records debut The World You Want to See, we’ll have to settle for live footage of their recent trek across the U.S. with Have Mercy for the time being.
The self-identified dream punk collective is sharing a new video for “Perception” today that’s cobbled together from footage of this recent tour. The track, which vocalist/guitarist Malia Endres dubs TWYWTS’s “theme song,” soundtracks playful clips of their live show, as well as scenes of botched ollies and dramatic gutter balls, with the song’s lyrics aptly “acknowledging how everyone perceives the world in their own way, which sets us up to realize the power we have in the way we experience our lives,” as Endres puts it. “I hope the song encourages listeners to reflect on how they think about themselves, their experiences, and their world in a way that they can see the beauty and magic in all of those things.”
Of the video, she continues: “The music video was created by our friend Andrew Le as a fun reflection on our tour with Have Mercy, Fredo Disco, and Young Culture. We are so grateful to have been able to play those shows and spend time with those bands. It was an inspiring tour for us and we are excited to share some of those moments with you in this video.”
