Vancouver, Canada’s Dralms premiered a video for their single Shook this week in advance of the release of their debut full-length album of the same names’ arrival, October 2 via Boompa Records (in North America) and Full Time Hobby (in Europe) – watch it via YouTube below.

 

Shook was directed by the band’s singer/songwriter Christopher Smith himself. Much like his curated Instagram account, he approaches video making with an eye for clean-lined minimalistic modern art and sparse iconography. Smith emerges as a skilled director, using repetitive calculated movement to draw the viewer in. It forces you to look at the details. The flowers change, the sweatshirts change, the woman in the bed is a little more in frame, the musical mood remains the same. Shook lyrics are left to hang in the air as Christopher spins within the video.

Well I think, I dreamt of you last night
While my thoughts, they are not clear
The feeling it holds on tight

When I awoke I was covered in your scent
with bruises on my wrists
and scratches on my neck
and we both know what we’re dreaming of
and we both know what we’re looking for

Yeah we both know what we’re dreaming of
and we both know what we’re looking for
Well I think, I dreamed of you last night
While my thoughts, they are not clear
The feeling it holds on tight

When I awoke I was covered in your scent
with bruises on my wrists
and scratches on my neck
and we both know what we’re dreaming of
and we both know what we’re looking for

You’re the best I ever had o master
You’re the best I ever had o master
You’re the best I ever had o master
oh my better half
you cum and plaster crumbles to the floor

“Shook is that moment when everything changes. Where you hold on to what’s true to you for dear life, or let it all crumble, accept it, pick up the pieces and move on,” explains singer Christopher Smith.
