Video: MINT FIELD - "Petty Box"
Tijuana's MINT FIELD come with very few words on "Petty Box." Their brief observations sound ripped from a teen movie to which the song’s sinister, psychedelic riffing could easily fit the score. As one of the darker tracks from their Primeras Salidas EP, the trio faithfully present themselves in this light for the accompanying video. In it, we see background beauty queens and home movie shots chock-full of dream symbolism (bathtubs, bananas, credit to Noisey for the introduction and that dissection). The last shot frames the band looking straight on and extra moody in a way that only an emerging group could get away with. These are eyes that give us chills, but more importantly also signal the future.
