It’s been a little over two months since Spring Silver, the recording project of K. Nkanza, dropped their excellent sophomore album I Could Get Used to This. Featuring contributions from Bartees Strange, Dylan Baldi of Cloud Nothings, Sadie Dupuis, Mister Goblin, Jhariah, and many more, I Could Get Used to This builds on the foundation of emo and post-hardcore, stretching it in every way imaginable. Anchored down by Nkanza’s singular style as well as their fondness for heavy riffs, the ten tracks that make up I Could Get Used to This are fervent, unpredictable, and wholly entertaining.

Today we’re stoked to be premiering the music video for “Set Up a Camera,” the albums fiery penultimate track. About the video Nkanza said: “Filmmaker Claire Maske hit me up to see if she could use my track “Set Up a Camera” for a short film she was making. What I didn’t realize was that it was going to be a full blown music video! She teamed up with visual artist Tomas Orrego, who did the amazing text graphics, to create this super colorful, stroboscopic experience! The narrative follows a party as it slowly descends into chaos. The camera swivels from scene to scene as you see the partygoers’ states deteriorate. It totally fits the vibe of the track. I love it!

Check it out below:

I Could Get Used to This is out now and you can order it on Bandcamp right here. If you’re in the DC area, you can catch Spring Silver playing at the Pocket Saturday, May 28th, with Raavi and Flowerbomb.
