Brazos - Saltwater

The sophomore album from indie rockers Brazos, which is called Saltwater, will be released on May 28th via Dead Oceans.  And for our first taste from the album, the band and label have released a video for album cut “How The Ranks Was Won.”

Frontman Martin Crane describes the video for “How The Ranks Was Won”:

“‘How the Ranks Was Won’ is about a kid who finds the empty ship his ancestors came over on which is now a ghost ship. He boards it, and takes it back. It’s about taking charge of your memory and your past. I thought it would be funny to do that in modern life. In the video I get a text message from a memory (or maybe my cell phone is secretly trying to control me?), it consumes me, I ride the dreamworld, I come back, then the dreamworld rides me.”
