Purevolume have premiered the new video for “Call Me Kuchu”, from Taylor Locke’s album Time Stands Still.

Known as the former guitarist for L.A.-based indie rockers Rooney, Taylor Locke released a solo LP earlier this year. Titled Time Stands Still, Locke showcases a songwriting prowess that fans of his former band may not have realized. Today, we’re excited to premiere the latest video off that album. “Call Me Kuchu” is styled as an old fashioned movie, but don’t let the fun vibes fool you. The song’s serious tenor is played down by the imagery, which is something that Locke intended.

“The challenge was to respect the serious nature of the song, but without illustrating the lyrical content too literally,” Locke says of the video. “I wanted to walk the line between having fun, but also acknowledging the matter at hand. I hope people will be entertained and drawn in by the look of the video, but also take a close listen to whats going on under the surface.”

If you’re a fan of Big Star, try this fragile, very pretty song from Rooney guitarist Taylor Lock, which is forlorn and heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time in a way that reminds us a bit of Elliott Smith or Ben Folds or Michael Penn or another one of those American songwriters. We’ve heard the album of the same name, which is excellent and rather more upbeat.” – Classic Rock Magazine
