Cobalt Cranes Lay Flowers On Your Grave

If you need to get away from a dreary day, look no further than Cobalt Cranes’ new video for “Flowers On Your Grave,” which is a lot less bleak than the title suggests. The quartet channels its Southern California roots with sun-bleached vocals, swirling psychedelia, and a healthy splash of grunge grit. Directed by Sweet Fang, the clip is a vibrant take on wandering through the desert.

“We were inspired by early 70’s California desert imagery, bands like the Burrito Brothers and Fleetwood Mac,” the band describes. “We wanted to take a Sergio Leone movie through a modern psychedelic trip.”

There’s also a hint of the 80s, updating the primary-colored hues of True Stories, David Byrne’s oddball ode to Texas. If you’re looking for more of Cobalt Cranes’ Wild West vibes, check out their latest release Days In The Sun, out now on Lolipop Records, and follow them on Facebook for more.
