Yarn-Bombed Music Video

Seventeen Evergreen knits their own world

Love yarn? How about yarn on absolutely everything? This slightly dark and subtly humor-tinged music video entertains the idea of what would happen if we could create a yarn-bombed world within a pile of thrift store clothes. Crochet terrorists abduct innocent bargain shoppers and stitch them up into brightly colored, mismatching full-body suits. The new inductees join the cult of yarn and steal more victims to add to their numbers. The world slowly grows into a giant patchwork universe where lamps, telephones, and entire rooms are all coated in a thick layer of knitted kitsch. It's like an ugly sweater party amped up to apply to the whole world. It also looks like the video was one heck of a lot of fun to film. Who doesn't want to wreak havoc inside of a thrift store while rocking a woolen gas mask and patchwork pants? No one. Absolutely no one. 

The catchy little tune which this video accompanies is called 'Polarity Song'. It's performed by a band from San Francisco known as Seventeen Evergreen. Their debut four-track Psyentist EP will be out on mp3 and limited edition 10" vinyl later this month. If you like what you're hearing, you can head on over to the group's Bandcamp to pre-order either version of the release. The awesome crafty video was directed by Terri Timely, who teamed up with Sarah Applebaum to invent the weird and wonderful concept behind the imagery. Zoe Kim and Jona Tochet worked on the video's art direction, and the whole affair was produced by David Lambert. Watch it below.
