Sometimes the concept for a song’s visuals are immediately apparent. Other times it can be a struggle to wrestle a musical composition into imagery. For “The Space Between Us” from New York City trio +/-, the contrasts between the waves on the beach and the wintry, snow-covered city streets tells you almost everything you need to know about the song.
“The video and the song chronicle a journey,” the band’s James Baluyut told us. “In the video’s case, a very long journey from Coney Island to Manhattan. On an extremely cold day. In the driving snow. But, it’s beautiful when you get a glimpse of the destination.”
“The Space Between Us” is from Jumping The Tracks, the band’s first new music in five years. They’ll perform at the Mercury Lounge in New York City on Friday night. It will be snowy.
