“The lustrous new Spring Silver album, “I Could Get Used to This,” sounds like it was made by someone who grew up minding the tweaky electronic details of the Warp Records catalogue and the melody-saturated guitar riffs of post-hardcore heroes Jawbox and Shudder to Think.” – Washington Post Spring Silver’s latest single “Little Prince”, off of their sophomore LP I Could Get Used To This, now has a dreamy music video to accompany it.
The video’s production draws upon the well-developed visual arts background of the band’s founder K Nkanza. It captures the track’s vibrant energy in its myriad of bright colors, and emphasizes Spring Silvers’ eccentricities through warped effects, sharp cuts, and fabulous makeup.
Nkanza, a multi-instrumentalist, Washington D.C. local raised in South Dakota, playfully describes their music as “queer metal.” Spring Silver is a product of a childhood spent playing both violin and guitar, living in both suburbia and farmland, and ingesting everything from electronic to rock music.
This is what makes “Little Prince” sound so unique: genre-bending and a wide variety of inspiration. Nkanza’s voice taps into the edge of alternative choruses from yesteryear, questioning, “Is this not enough, you spoiled little prince?” The track itself is a commentary on the surreal nature of suburban life.
