Video Premiere: Scattered Trees - “Five Minutes”
Chicago’s Scattered Trees released their third album, Sympathy, last year and the band’s latest video—a live version of “Five Minutes”—is a beautifully emotive crescendo of a song. Beginning with strikingly spare percussion and ultimately building into a mosh-worthy peak, “Five Minutes” represents the pain, mourning and catharsis of singer/songwriter Nate Eiesland.
