Melbourne band Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have released a video for “Read My Mind,” the B-side of their latest single, “In the Capital.”
The psychedelic mid-tempo track is packed with jangly guitar chords and subtle drumbeats. The accompanying Warwick Baker-directed clip captures a late afternoon at the rodeo, with slow-motion footage of riders facing off against bovines in grainy black and white.
“I hoped to observe and document the spectacle of the rodeo, focusing on the performers rather than the audience,” Baker said in the video’s YouTube description, “Being a vegetarian I found the event confronting, but wanted to document the theater and ritual of the rodeo without glorifying or condemning it.”
