Said the Whale Share "Show Me Everything"
Watch a video for the latest single from the band's new album
Published Jun 10, 2021After dropping "Honey Lungs" earlier this year, Vancouver's Said the Whale are continuing their new music streak with another single and a video to match.
The contemplative "Show Me Everything" is despairing but also embedded with hopeful glimmers courtesy of the band's signature rich soundscape. It's the first song where they've been accompanied by a string section, featuring members of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
Directed by Sterling Larose and Riley Orr, the "Show Me Everything" video carries forth the narrative and characters from their previous music video for "Everything She Touches Is Gold to Me."
After shooting a local reporter (played by the band's own Tyler Bancroft) with an arrow, mountain man Krock Dynamo (Ben Worcester) fields an existential crisis. He reckons with the lost-in-the-wilderness consciousness of it all: "I've got a lifeline tethered to the land / But I'm at sea."
Haunted by visions of the man he's slain, he asks his ancestors for guidance as he struggles with his actions' repercussions and their place in history. One way or another, he gets found.
In tandem with the release, Said the Whale have also confirmed that their still-under-wraps upcoming album will be released via Everything Forever, a new label helmed by Bancroft.
