Spiral Stairs shares new video for ‘Emoshuns’
24th March 2017
Kannberg also shares the video for ‘Emoshuns’ featuring vocals from Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew. Directed by Joe Salinas, it was filmed in Lockhart, Texas before Spiral Stairs played SXSW earlier this month, Salinas explains the making of the video:
“When I saw a picture of the laundromat I automatically thought of the movie Gummo. It was located about 50 miles outside of Austin in a small country town which is known more for their BBQ and cowboy boots. We got there and it felt like I had just stepped into a time machine that went back to 1984. The people in the video were actually washing their clothes that night and were watching us the whole time we were filming. I had a great time working with Scott on this video. He didn't ask what my idea was or if I had a plan, he just trusted me to get a little weird.”
Doris and The Daggers showcases the most personal and emotional music Kannberg has ever written, reflecting the life changes that occurred over those eight years. During that stretch, Scott weathered the loss of friends, treasured the joys of fatherhood, lived life as an Australian and even ate haggis meat – experiences that inform these warm, sweetly melodic and soundly honest songs.
“I guess I’ve been writing songs for a while now,” reflects Kannberg on his second album. “I like hearing echoes of things I love in the music that I make. Writing music doesn’t come easy to me – it’s hard to write a song that’s good. But our memories slowly escape us as we get older, and in songs you kind of relive those moments, the things that matter.”
Doris and The Daggers is available to buy on deluxe vinyl with bonus tracks, standard vinyl, CD and digital download.
