Keep Dallas Observer Free

The Paper Chase Gets Literal With New Video

While we're on the subject of music videos, let's go ahead and make it a trifecta with something even cuter than the Deheza twins and more kid-friendly than the JoBros.

The Paper Chase's new album Someday This Could All Be Yours, Vol. 1--which is awesome, my favorite from the band by a long shot--comes out today. As part of the promotional push, the band has released the above video for "What Should We Do With Your Body? (The Lightning)," created by director Clyde Petersen entirely from found footage.

It's a great visual complement to the song, using shock and grim humor to capture the dark themes. Also, it's somewhat disturbing and has a few NSFW moments--animal experimentation, slaughterhouse footage, mild nudity--so think twice before you press "play."

Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
