Video of the Moment #1974: City and Colour

By on Friday, 11th December 2015 at 6:00 pm

One of Toronto’s most talented songs, Dallas Green, better known by his inanimate stage name City and Colour, has a new video out this week for yet another track from his fifth album ‘If I Should Go Before You’. The release dropped in October, and our Carrie reviewed it for us (read her thoughts about the LP at the link).

I’m not big into interpretative dance. I’m sure this promo for ‘Lover Come Back’ – starring a young and talented African-American dancer kicking up his heels in a daytime rural setting (a cotton field no less, recalling days of slavery and oppression), then at nighttime among flames and embers – while looking artsy, is, representative of something far more important and touching than I can glean from just watching this once. Watch it below.

City and Colour hits the live scene in the UK in February; all the details are here. For more of our continuing coverage of Green and his music on TGTF, follow this link.
