Video: O’Death’s “Black Dress”

O'Death: OutsideO’Death: Outside (Ernest Jenning, 4/19/11)

Around this time last year, NYC-based alt-Americana band O’Death released its fourth full-length, recorded after drummer David Rogers-Berry recovered from osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer.

It’s no wonder, then, that Outside serves as a sort of reflection on mortality, which is especially evident in its new video for “Black Dress.” The video, directed by David Woolner, begins with a girl who, after an encounter with the Grim Reaper, must face a man from her past.
