Schooner - "Feel Better" (video) (Premiere)

Schooner presents the latest clip for punchy tune "Feel Better", from their excellent 2013 record, Neighborhood Veins.

In September, North Carolina's Schooner released Neighborhood Veins, an album we claims was a "gauzy, blown-out, beautiful pop record" and a "crowning achievement" for the band. One of the catchiest moments on that record is "Feel Better", a bouncy power-pop tune writ large by thick layers of instrumentation and Reid Johnson's wide-open, honeyed vocals. The video, crafted by multimedia artist Julianna Thomas, is just as charming and off-kilter. It tells a bittersweet and funny story about the ways we isolate ourselves, from virtual dating to literal disguises. Check it out below.
