Rural Alberta Advantage Go swimming in 'Muscle Relaxants'

New video for 'Muscle Relaxants'

Rolling Stone

Whereas the previous music video from the Rural Alberta Advantage's new album Departing had a silly, ironic conceit about a guy and a girl who utterly fail to connect at one of their gigs, their new clip for "Muscle Relaxants" goes in a very different direction, emphasizing beauty and grace as various men and women swim in slow motion through deep murky waters. The images are striking and serene, and serve as an interesting contrast with the band's ragged, passionate rock. To get some insight in how the video was made, you can go behind the scenes in this series of three videos.
