Frank Ene Tours an Abandoned Train Station in His “No Longer” Video
Ene’s debut LP of the same name is out today via Empty Cellar Records.
Today marks the day we finally get to hear Frank Ene’s moody debut LP in its entirety, and to sweeten the deal, the Bay Area songwriter is sharing a video for No Longer’s title track which matches the song’s brooding solitude. Set to the sounds of Ene’s sparse baritone and a dark-country guitar line that could only come from The Fresh & Onlys’ Wymond Miles, the clip sees Frank—at times barely visible—ambling around the remains of an abandoned train station, serving as a visual metaphor of sorts for the theme of mental vagrancy key to No Longer’s aesthetic.
“The ‘No Longer’ video was shot in a discontinued train station in West Oakland,” he shares of the visual’s setting, which matches the darks atmosphere of its preceding clip for “Flesh in a Womb.” “Obviously, the interior of the building is absolutely gorgeous. It was the perfect setting for a song that I find so tender, so vulnerable, and so vague.”
