Here’s a new video for the song “Glowing Black” from local rockers Pale. The Edge-like chime of the guitars, Stephen Morris-esque high-hat hiss and four-on-the-floor kick-drum beat and cinematography are all very 1985, but that seems to be the hip retro year right now.
It’s a pretty catchy little song, with a Muse-y little bridge and some fine thump from the bass player, but I think videos should have more of a concept than “here’s the band filtered through some mildly trippy camera effects.” – John Nova Lomax
KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE...
Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
The Houston Press is a nationally award-winning, 33-year-old publication ruled by endless curiosity, a certain amount of irreverence, the desire to get to the truth and to point out the absurd as well as the glorious.
