Each song on Bridges and Powerlines' Better EP (out next Tuesday on Daisy Pistol) takes its name from a different Brooklyn neighborhood. At the center is the soaring "Williamsburg," which agglomerates sounds around an intricate three-guitar pattern. The video mimics this crescendo, with flickering colored panels rising up to reveal more of the musician's visages as the song builds and a lone bicyclist (as befits the title) slowly makes his way across a nocturnal landscape. Images of fireworks accompany a whirring electro breakdown.
Bridges and Powerlines play an EP release show at Piano's, 158 Ludlow Street, this Saturday, May 18.
