Mozes and The Firstborn - Official Video for "Crawl" Gets Cinematic On You
Mozes and the Firstborn's new track "Crawl" has this big rock ballad sound and for whatever reason I thought of Oasis a bit and of Tired Pony and of Howard Hughes by Ride and during the chorus the melody faintly reminded me of Hurt by Nine Inch Nails. Sound and production wise it swings wide and should appeal to a wide demographic. This can always be a blessing and a curse in the indie world but I wish them the best of luck.
Now the video which I must say is top notch film making seems to be a morality play (or not) that breaks down to the basic credo of all 80's slasher movies: If you are young and have sex you will die. Again, this video is so well shot and acted although the male love interest is a bit creepy (serial killer vibe) but for me the imagery enhances the imagery not really the song. Mozes and the Firstborn themselves have a lot of charm and I like seeing them more in their videos. Awww but what do I know.
Great track though- and if it brings a wider audience to Mozes and the Firstborn then that is all that really matters because they deserve it.
