Alternative rock infused post-punk ensemble Object of Affection have unveiled their video for “Burning Light”. The band is a new project from members of hardcore groups Fury and Lock, post-punk outfit Death Bells, and psych-rock act Leather Slave.
“Burning Light” highlights the Object of Affection’s creative songwriting, taking cues from mainstays of 80’s post-punk and new wave scenes, as well as the daydreaming romanticism of early 90s alternative rock. Here, the band carves out a unique, yet nostalgic sound that is very much their own.
The video for “Burning Light” also showcases the talents of LA-based director, and Temple of Angel’s vocalist Bre Morell, who also previously directed Death Bell’s video for “A Different Kind of Happy.” Primarily using an early 00’s Hi-8 camera cut with beautiful 8mm film, the colorful and grainy footage captures the same energy and distinctive style that Morell is quickly becoming known for.
Watch the video for “Burning Light” below:
“Burning Light” is taken from Object of Affection’s self-titled debut EP, out now on Chaotic No Good. The label has made a limited run of 100 super special home-dubbed, risograph printed cassettes.
Previously, Chaotic No Good, known for their design work for many artists and labels including Funeral Party, Temple of Angels, Death Bells, Boy Harsher, Drab Majesty, and others, has only released bootleg cassette releases, with Object of Affection’s debut EP being the label’s first original music release.
“Burning Light” is also available on Spotify, Apple Music, and several other platforms.
