“Four years ago I interviewed my grandfather at the age of 96 to talk about his life,” said Blitzen Trapper drummer Brian Koch of the inspiration behind the video. “I was struck by how, even though so much had become blurry, confused or completely fallen away from his memory, some things remained.”
Just shy of his grandfather’s 100th birthday, Koch teamed up with director Daniel Elkayam to create a video from his grandfather’s POV. Oddly, the video turned out to be a perfect visual match for ‘Girl in a Coat,’ off the Portland band’s 2011 LP American Goldwing.
Fuck, I forgot how fantastic this song is.
