Music Video of the Week: Shadows On Stars’ Hipster Tea Party

on Tuesday, Dec. 18th

Indie pop duo Shadows On Stars revisited their self titled debut album with a visual accompaniment to the track, “When It Builds.” In director David Helman’s interpretation, a little gir stumbles upon a very stylish masquerade tea champagne party in the woods. Gliding shots of the party-goers in the forest really compliment both vibrant and tranquil qualities in the tune.
