Sanders Bohlke drops video for beautiful new single “Serious”

Sanders Bohlke

“Serious” is the sixth track on Sanders Bohlke’s magnificent album Ghost Boy; an utterly moving tune, the song contains both truth and emotional intensity. Filmed in Jackson, Mississippi by director Robby Piantanida, Bohlke explains that editor Azod Abedikichi should take most of the credit for “taking this beautiful footage and really capturing the loneliness intended in the song.” Piantanida and Sanders had a simple idea and shot the clip during the span of one short, very hot afternoon. Framed by the solitary act of shooting baskets and skateboarding, including a losing round of one-on-one with Frank, another basketball player that just happened to be in the park while they were filming, Sanders conveys this profound sense of loneliness and frustration. It’s empowering footage that justifies such a powerful song. After opening for Rachael Yamagata on her tour of more than 28 major markets throughout the U.S. and Canada, later this month Sanders will join both Aofie O’Donovan and Gregory Alan Isakov on select dates for each of their tours in the Southeast and Midwest.
