Video: Twin Peaks – “Wanted You”

posted by Oscar April 10, 2017

The Twin Peaks dudes have dropped a new music video for their song “Wanted You,” off 2016’s fantastic album, Down In Heaven. The Chicago group got Ezra Ewen to direct the visual, collecting a series of events and bringing them together as one to convey a particular mood that pairs well with the slow groove jam.

Singer and guitarist said about the video in a press release:

“We had a list of a few things when we started; snow, old car, candles, paint, coats, chess, animal masks… Most of it was things we had lying around. We improvised it and then we played with the editing, using reverse footage, to give it a cycle, so it ends where it begins.”
