Black Marble is a one-man synth pop band by Chris Stewart, set to release a new LP “Bigger Than Life” on Sacred Bones records. “Feels” is a melancholic version of upbeat, brushing up against Pet Shop Boys of the “Being Boring” era. The video conjures up the same sort of bittersweet feeling of cherishing and letting go of the past.
Directed by Izrayl Brinsdon:
“'Feels' is a reflection of past trauma triggered by space and place. Physical objects transcend time and present an intangible past to the subject. The use of real VHS footage from family archives establishes a source of nostalgia that is honest and without fabrication. While conversing with Black Marble, it became evident that the lyrical and visual narratives were cohesive. Combined, the audience is left with a farewell note to the past. No matter how vivid a memory, we must all keep moving forward.”
