“Me to Me”

Quin Galavis has just dropped the video for “Me to Me,” a radio-only single that won’t appear on his upcoming third album, The Battery Line, but may provide a hint of what we could expect. The release will come out this May, alongside a SXSW showcase, local Austin shows, and a tour for the album. Musically, “Me to Me” seems to be considerably more chill than those on last year’s My Life in Steel and Concrete — in the past, his music sounded like Swans, but this sounds more like Dirty Projectors — but if the track is any indication, the forthcoming album will also go deep.

Quick recap: the video starts, and the main characters — perhaps some version of Quin Galavis and his girlfriend — are fighting. They both appear to be feeling pretty bad. He soon appears in a dark room with a line painted down his face, at which point Galavis is harmonizing with himself in the song. Later, the two are outside and the woman is sporting a striped, sparkling shirt and sunglasses, but they are still fighting. Then he smokes a cigarette. Then they are in bed. Then, even later, things get even more abstract and men are spitting beer on him.

I am arguing with my girlfriend right now as I write this, so the video is hitting home with me. Quin Galavis is doing it. Watch the video below and then see him at SXSW.
