Black Feather – “Razor Blade” Music Video

I hear the words “haunting” and “beautiful” used to describe a lot of songs, but to me, this beautiful track by Black Feather, “Razor Blade,” is epic and daring and completely worthy of those two adjectives.

Their record dropped earlier this year on Portland, Oregon’s Other Electricities, and I’d say this song is the best of the bunch.

This video was filmed in Kabul, Afghanistan by Anders Sømme Hammer. The video’s a little rough with its use of youth boxers, but it peaks when the song peaks and subsides when the song subsides.
