Here’s a little something to break up the end-of-the-year music slump: Oakland’s Empty Moon has shared his latest video, for “Dear Life,” off this year’s The Shark.
Shot in Albuquerque, the video for “Dear Life” contains a simple, kinda-sweet premise about a house party and spiked drinks; basketball jerseys and night trips to the beach. Empty Moon’s brassy vocals provides a stirring soundtrack.
Known in his daily life as Brendan Hangauer, Empty Moon relocated to the Bay after a long, successful stint as a local musician in Lawrence, Kansas. With a little help from his friend Jason Quever, he made his debut record as Empty Moon, The Shark, out now on High Dive records.
