Forth Wanderers Release Melancholic "Taste" Video

Forth Wanderers’ self-titled album, released in April, features the collaborative efforts of guitarist/songwriter Ben Guterl and vocalist/lyricist Ava Trilling, who sent songs to each other across state lines to achieve their musical goals. On Monday Forth Wanderers, a five-piece indie band, released a music video (dir. Everett Ravens) for “Taste” off of Forth Wanderers.

Model Sebastian Rosemarie takes on the leading role, maintaining sorrowful eyes throughout the video, which opens with a scene of Rosemarie, red-lit and sitting on a bed, followed by her on a car ride with her boyfriend. It continues through bright, natural-colored scenes with said boyfriend and red-tinted scenes with the lover she’s cheating on him with before coming full circle at the end with the same images of Rosemarie on the bed and in the car. “Not a trace of guilt, not a glimpse of regret. I’ll sit still and hold my breath,” Trilling sings. The heavy melancholy already present in the song is expounded upon in the visuals, now associated with it—the “good” white-light relationship bloodied by red unfaithfulness (“Starts to bleed all down his lip”) and some suggested real blood when Rosemarie takes a toilet’s tank cover from the bathroom to the bedroom, as though to bash in her lover’s head.

Forth Wanderers will be supporting the release of their self-titled record on a summer U.S. tour starting in Virginia this Wednesday, June 27. Watch the music video for “Taste” below and find the band’s tour dates further down.
