Mountain Time Unveils Captivating New Video


Since it as released, Music For Looking Animals by Mountain Time proved that Chris Simpson was more than just the front man for emo group Mineral. The album showcased a different sound from the singer songwriter while also expanded what he was known for in the past. With his new video for “Empty Graves” he reveals another clip that pairs perfectly with the music, while letting the music take the lead.

The black and white video doesn’t have a glimpse of Simpson in it aside from the music. Featuring a performer tap dancing and playing accordion to empty streets, it definitely rings true during these dark times. Donning a mask, trying to get anything, the video reveals more than what’s witnessed. Dark and at times inward, the silence of no one is much like artists playing to a crowd they cannot be face to face with. The song has such lush orchestration in its build, that it’s easily Simpson taking on a new role that we’re ready for more of.

The video is ready to watch above or on YouTube. Music For Looking Animals is available to purchase directly from Spartan Records on various formats, or to stream on all streaming sites.
