Brooklyn's Journalism make driving post-punk that's reaching for something greater -- "Faces I," from the band's most recent Faces LP, pushes hypnotically through the weight of "playing rock and roll" when "no one hears the words." On the track, frontman Kegan Zema coolly laments of quotidian struggles over an urging beat and piercing guitars. "I'm a creative animal, not a human being," he quips.
The video for "Faces I," premiering exclusively on MTV News, captures the song's sharp, angular vibe through zooming live footage and playful cuts. Watch below.
