Waxahatchee – “Under a Rock” (video)

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.

“Under a Rock”:

Ivy Tripp is out on 7 April via Merge.
