Veruca Salt have released the meta, reflective video for their new single “Eyes on You.” The track appears on Ghost Notes, the band’s first album that features the original line-up since 1997’s Eight Arms to Hold You.
In the clip, the members of the band are sequestered into different rooms of a house and watching each other on staticky television sets. The shots also switch to images of two girls — who may be singers and guitarists Nina Gordon and Louise Post — frolicking in the grass until one pulls out a switchblade. At one point, Post is reading a book titled Nina within her room.
“We think of this song as a forensic study of the end of a friendship — searching for the exact moment where something went terribly wrong,” Gordon told Noisey. “We might have done a CSI-type video instead, or Quincy or something. But one thing we really wanted to get at was the isolation you can feel when analyzing a breakup, so we figured that maybe having us stuck there watching each other on TV screens for all eternity would do the trick.”
