“Never Does” – Official Music Video

A driving pop infused song about love and loss. Never Does is a pulsing, minor-key tale about a lack of fulfillment and closure told with a rapid-fire vocal delivery. Subtle audio effects and haunting background vocals add to the unceasing and urgent sense of anxiety here. For more information on the album Blue Ruin, click here.
