Watch Mount Moriah’s Nostalgic “Baby Blue” Video

Baby Blue Mount Moriah Video

“You know nothing lasts forever, even if you want it to,” Mount Moriah vocalist Heather McEntire reminds us tenderly on “Baby Blue,” a sentiment that pairs well with the poignant moments portrayed in the song’s new video. Director Jordan Michael Blake takes us on a visual journey through a series of seemingly candid moments like a smiling baby in his father’s arms and a man sitting naked at his kitchen table sending a text. The video, which premiered over at Stereogum, is for their latest single off the North Carolina trio’s upcoming third album How to Dance. The video allows behind-the-scenes moments to mix freely with the staged scenes, a tactic of transparency that forces us to examine the meaning behind life’s little moments — the ones that often fly under our radar despite the fact that we believe ourselves to be present in them. “Baby Blue” is slow-burning and steady folk song, and the stark, simple images will evoke a familiar wave of nostalgia in the pit of your stomach. Watch below.

How to Dance is out on 2/26 via Merge Records. Pre-order it here.
