Music Video Monday: Big Waves of Pretty

Surf a wave of nostalgia for this week's Music Video Monday.

A few years ago, Memphis filmmaker (and Flyer contributor) Ben Siler started making a video for "Shoot Him Again, His Soul's Still Dancing" by Minneapolis band Big Waves of Pretty. But life intervened, and he only recently finished the project, which he calls "pure, experimental lo-fi imagery...it features me and Monica Summerfield doing our best Wild at Heart impressions."

The video is a hypnotic montage of hazy memories of the ups and downs of a relationship. As with many Siler productions, things seem unconnected at first, until a narrative subtly emerges, and the lost love turns dark.
