Courtney Barnett has premiered the music video for “Kim’s Caravan,” the single from her recent LP Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit. She describes the song as “an apocalyptic tale of our world painted black with oil and soot, painted red with blood and greed. The song was born when blessed with time to reflect, feeling the frustration and helplessness of the destruction of my environment and the litter of humans within it,” and the music video appropriately conveys that feeling of desolation.

Directed by Bec Kingman, “Kim’s Caravan” sees Barnett wandering around her childhood haunts and presents old places that hold good memories as faded homes of darkness, which Kingman keenly captured after hearing Barnett’s song for the first time. Kingman said of the clip:
