Video of the Day: Twilight Sad’s Seven Years of Letters

As if we didn’t like The Twilight Sad’s “Seven Years of Letters” already, we’re truly smitten after seeing the new video. It’s directed by Adam Stafford and produced by Accidental Media.

I’ve seen a few other reviews of the video that describe a cryptic gang, but I don’t think that’s the true plot. It’s a man a woman and a child in cloth masks, pulling an even smaller child’s body and dumping it into the sea. The child’s mask is the same one being worn by a lad trying to suffocate his mum on the cover of 2008’s “Here, It Never Snowed. Afterwards It Did.” It’s also the same mask the kids on the cover of “That Summer, At Home I had Become The Invisible Boy” and “‘The Twilight Sad Killed My Parents And Hit The Road.” Should have asked James about the significance of the masks when I had the chance in September.
