Patrick Park's "Dust and Mud", off of his Love Like Swords, LP, is a perfect summer tune. Director JT Gurzi directed the video for the song.

In slightly amending that most famous Game of Thrones tropes, it can be said that upon viewing the video to Patrick Park’s “Dust and Mud”, directed by JT Gurzi, it is more than obvious that summer is coming. Sunny, understated electric guitar, breezy drumming, and Park’s affable vocals come together to form a sun-kissed tune, one ideal for cruising along beach.
Those California residents will find a lot to love in Gurzi’s video. Park tells us about the locations for the video: “I did the ‘Dust and Mud’ video with my good friend, the very talented director JT Gurzi. We used a really interesting format to film the video. The camera we used is called a Lomokino super 35mm. It shoots regular 35 mm film and just has a very unique look to it. The film turns out being very jumpy and saturated. We shot at locations all over southern California. The Salton Sea, Salvation Mountain, Joshua Tree, and part of an old shipwreck on the southern coast.

Upon hearing Park’s album Love Like Swords, Gurzi was “immediately engaged”, saying, “the delightful rhythm and playful tone of the track necessitated a visual component equally as engaging. Striving for an organic extension to compliment ‘Dust and Mud’ in a manner that would be equally as playful in it’s overall aesthetic, we settled on a circular narrative exploring nature and an experimental format enhancing this peculiar journey.

As “Dust and Mud” so effortlessly captures, California is a sunny road to travel.

Love Like Swords is out now on Cobraside.
