Waxahatchee - "Under a Rock" (video)

by Brice Ezell

2 April 2015

Waxahatchee's latest music video appears to have been filmed on video cameras from the early '90s.

In describing Waxahatchee’s breakthrough sophomore album Cerulean Salt for PopMatters, Arnold Pan writes, “[The record] is proof positive that Katie Crutchfield is well on her way to becoming all she can be, an emerging artist who definitely possesses the skills and a point-of-view that you’ve either got or don’t.” Two years after that album, Crutchfield has now readied the third Waxahatchee LP, Ivy Tripp.

Long associated with a lo-fi sound, Waxahatchee has now matched their audio lo-fi cred with a music video that’s so lo-fi it looks like it was filmed on cameras two decades old. The band’s newest music video is for the Ivy Tripp tune “Under a Rock”, which you can view below.

Ivy Tripp is out on 7 April via Merge.
