While the music of Infinity Girl might be regularly referred to as shoegaze, for the video for their song “Firehead”, they had their sights set in the opposite direction. The clip blends together footage of the band at work with a more skyward tableau, including a murmuration of birds coming in and out of focus, which, come to think of it, is a nice abstract way to refer to the song.
The video, shot by Gregg Conde, takes on a nice life with the production and editing of Brady Custis.
“I used to work in South Boston which is right by Logan Airport,’ Custis says. “I’d be outside most of the time so I’d basically watch planes take off and land all day. They always seemed to be barely above the buildings and beaches. I loved the dichotomy of seeing the seagulls flying by the beaches in these crazy patterns while these huge man made machines flew straight through the air above them. Once I got a shot of the moon I saw the story arc for the video play out in my head and the narrative seemed right for “Firehead.” People’s ability to imitate and the leaps that these tools allow us to take.'”
