Announcing the new music video for “Wired to Make Waves” by Nervous Curtains
--Vibrant, subtly creepy, slightly hallucinatory and absurd—
After collaborating on 2010’s “All Yesterday’s Parties” video, Dallas rock band Nervous Curtains has again teamed up with director Justin Wilson of Liberal Media Films for a striking fusion of audio and imagery.
The video is marked by deep reds and blacks and scrambled video images that struggle to keep up with the pulse of the song. Set in an unspecified past, the band is seen performing in a circus tent. A hack magician shocks and thrills his audience with a rabbit and sword trick. The trick turns out to be no illusion, and a young assistant is responsible for disposing of the sacrificed rabbit after the show. The assistant as a grown man, played by Ochre House Theater’s Justin Locklear, is haunted by his past.
