Canada’s Memoryhouse are known for their dreamy tracks that bring to mind distant, indistinct memories thanks to the ethereal quality of Memoryhouse’s rich soprano. The group just released a video for their song Heirloom, which is a B-side from their November 7-inch Caregiver. The video was directed by Jamie Harley, a man known for his ability to piece together beautiful moving imagery. His gift is clearly displayed in Heirloom’s video as the viewer follows a mysterious raven-haired beauty through hazy shots of beaches and deserts. The different stills bring to mind the feeling of when you discover an old photo album of your parents and realize they had this amazingly cool life before you came along. The non-linear video matches perfectly with the peaceful music and the combination of the visual with audio creates a peacefully calming vibe.
