The concept behind the video was that it would be a painting of the music. While the band performed the song the band is wearing LED bracelets and LED lights on their fingers. Different takes of the LED were then layered.

Brief Candles have a few shows lined up this weekend:

BRIEF CANDLES
NEWHOUSE EP o LP/CD/DIGITAL
GILT 057

The Newhouse EP was recorded this year by Kevin at Humdrum Studios in Milwaukee because that is what bands do. Especially bands that buy 24 track tape recorders and install them in their basements. We recently came to a revelation regarding our music. Since three of us are originally from Peoria, IL (home of Richard Pryor) and relocated to Milwaukee, and since our drummer is a native Milwaukean (home of Gene Wilder) our music is very similar aesthetically to the seminal films Silver Streak, Stir Crazy, and See No Evil, Hear No Evil. As to the title of the EP, “Newhouse”, it's dedicated to our friend, Mike Newhouse, who we lost last fall. He was a great friend who I hope is skating some cosmic half pipe whilst trying to pick up women with the line “I can play the Sight of You” by the Pale Saints on guitar”. So to Mike we dedicate the musical representation of Stir Crazy. I'm sure he'd approve. The Newhouse EP came out October 2013 on Guilt Ridden Pop.
