Blitzen Trapper "Girl in a Coat" Video

Blitzen Trapper released the video for "Girl in a Coat" from their latest album American Goldwing. Here is what drummer Brain Koch had to say about the video via Rolling Stone:

"Four years ago I interviewed my grandfather at the age of 96 to talk about his life," said Blitzen Trapper drummer Brian Koch of the inspiration behind the video, directed by Daniel Elkayam. "I was struck by how, even though so much had become blurry, confused or completely fallen away from his memory, some things remained. Just shy of his 100th birthday, Daniel Elkayam and I began to create a video from my grandfather's perspective, blurring the boundaries of time and space in memory. 'Girl in a Coat,' with its wearied narrative of retrospection, seemed the perfect match for the concept."
