Marc Manning has been with Ball of Wax since volume 1, track 1. “A Sword,” from his newish electro-goth-gaze band Tied to the Branches, is featured on Volume 23. And now it has a video. “A Sword,” unlike some of Tied to the Branches’ more propulsive, beat-driven songs, recalls the sound of Marc’s earlier work as Everything Is Fine. The smeary, rainy, black and white road trip footage is the perfect accompaniment to the fuzzed-out, delay- and reverb-soaked sound of this song; it feels like your brain rattling woozily around in your head on a long drive.
