Still Life (Official Video)
Don Giovanni Records
The lyrics are about seeing things realistically, seeing beyond what you think is real to what really lies beneath, and being self aware. The images that illustrate this, like a skeletal hand holding a cigarette, ashes building to cover a table, alcohol, a drug taken, with a poker game as a backdrop, all mixed with lots of fruit, phone cases, social media symbols, and many other images, are animated by musician Daniel Lobb.
R. Ring is Kelley Deal and Mike Montgomery, and their upcoming album, War Poems, We Rested, is their first since 2017’s Ignite The Rest. Lots of crunchy guitars from Mike and Kelley, booming drums by Laura King, and wise singing by Kelley add up to a very interesting, very great clip and song. The album will be out January 27, 2023, so if you like what you see and hear here, pick it up.
