In February, Andrew Bird offered up “Left Handed Kisses”, a promising single off forthcoming album Are You Serious. This week, the Fiona Apple-featuring duet receives the video treatment courtesy of Phil Andelman (Passion Pit, Ryan Adams).
Taking a page from the vulnerable love song itself, the clip finds Bird and Apple portraying a couple arguing face to face in a dim room. Both musicians sing lyrics from the track, delivering the lines like bits of retaliation and justification, but it’s their facial expressions and body language that conveys the most emotion here. There are frustrated shrugs, valiant efforts to bite one’s tongue and show restraint, and even a bunch of eye rolls from Bird.
