The Cactus Blossoms Release Music Video for ‘Stoplight Kisses’
The Cactus Blossoms have shared a music video for their song "Stoplight Kisses."
The clip, directed by Sarah Jean Shervin, begins with brothers Page Burkum and Jack Torrey, as well as their band, appearing as perfectly still silhouettes against a white background. The video is very minimalist: As the Cactus Blossoms play the song, the light changes around them with the melody.
"Stoplight Kisses" is the first track on the Cactus Blossoms' You're Dreaming album, released in late January. Burkum and Torrey have developed a classic country sound that is reminiscent of the Everly Brothers, but they are quick to point out that their sonic evolution came naturally, not as a conscious decision.
“… I’m just trying to write songs and express myself and have fun with words and melodies, and for some reason, it just kind of hovered in that realm,” Torrey explains to The Boot. “I hope that it feels fresh and not like some — it’s not intended to be a re-enactment of anything.”
