The Arcs are a new band which features Black Keys band member Dan Auerbach as well as Leon Michels, Richard Swift, Homer Steinweiss and Nick Movshon. Noisey have now premiered the video for their new single “Put a Flower in your Pocket”. Noisey also commented that the single “is what we’ve come to expect from the likes of Auerbach and crew—dirty, bluesy soulful music with a reverbed, modern twist“.
Director Omar Juarez who animated the video commented: “My style is a combination of Chicano Art mixed with universal monsters, or more specifically the wolf man. The characters in the video are Rosie, the boxer, and the gangster. Rosie and the boxer are in their 20s and share equal interests in each other ever since they laid eyes on each other it was love at first sight”.
Juarez continued, saying, “However, there is one big obstacle between them: Rosie’s boyfriend the gangster and his gangster lifestyle. After seeing her boyfriend cutting off the hand of the boxer for losing the biggest fight in his career, Rosie shot her boyfriend in retaliation and fled with the boxer. Unknowingly the gangster lived and came back to kill the boxer. Rosie being devastated took her own life to be with her love in the ghost world. GHOST LOVERS”. You can watch the video below.
