Tucson's Brian Lopez released a new video this month for the title track off of his 2014 release "Static Noise," and, ladies and gentlemen, it's a real thinker.
In Tucson Weekly's 2014 feature of Lopez
, he said this of the song:
"That song actually is about a man's love for his broken television." Lopez explained. "A very lonely man, obviously. He's singing to his television, that just plays the static noise. That was just me on piano, a live take. I wanted to hear my fingers pressing the keys. I wanted it to be just like you are in the room with me."
According to music critic Linda Ray, "the music invokes a mid-century movie scene with a white piano, a women dancing in bias-cut satin and, in the air, the fragrance of gardenias." However, it seems Lopez and director Nadine Roselle went the complete opposite path with his aesthetic for the video, instead relying on a more macabre, bare, and solitary style, as well as some familiar imagery
