Small Black Releases “Real People” Video (Currently On Tour)

Real PeopleSmall Black has released a video for “Real People”, the title track off of their forthcoming 12″ EP. Helmed by Nick Bentgen, this video perpetuates the off-beat beauty from Bentgen and Small Black’s previous joint venture for “Breathless”. Bentgen described the concept behind the video and working with Small Black:

I love talking about movies with Josh.  He’s a huge cinephile, and we recently got to talking about sci-fi films — the big ones from the ’70s and ’80s.  All the guys in Small Black are freaks for anything Sci Fi, especially Ryan and Juan, and their conspiracy theories are incredible.

Josh sent me “Real People”, and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. The song had this mysterious, unfathomable quality. I wanted to put those feelings in the context of a sci-fi movie — the kind that doesn’t exist anymore — where every scene is throwing a heightened emotion at you. Small Black made such an immense track that I had to visually keep up.  So I had to work with aliens.

Real People, the new 12″ EP from Small Black, features guest vocals from Frankie Rose on two tracks as well as a cover of “The Downtown Lights” by Scottish legends The Blue Nile. The “luxe, synth-popped” EP
