We had our suspicions, collected little clues, that Wise Blood was telling us a story on last year's These Wings EP. The video for "Loud Mouths" let's some of that narrative out of the fog. Chris Laufman, aka Wise Blood, is caught up in a dangerous game involving mafiosos or worse yet corrupt foreign politicans and aristocracy. It's never clear what his wrong-doing was in the matter, perhaps he simply crashed the wrong birthday party, but it all goes awry for Laufman. Though ittle do his kidnappers know, Laufman has the animal kingdom on his side (or did we miss something?).
These Wings EP is out now on Dovecote.
