Only a few months ago, Alexandra Niedzialkowski and her Cumulus bandmates launched a Kickstarter with a charming video, in which they all cook omelettes and ask for money to help put the finishing touches on the band’s debut full-length, previously recorded at Phil Elverum’s Anacortes studio, the Unknown.
Cumulus play Neumos tonight.
Since then the band met its goal, got picked up by Chris Walla’s record label, Trans Records, and apparently filmed one of the most impressive music videos I’ve seen this year for quick sing-along single “Do You Remember”. As you can see above, the genius of the video is all about light, and the song is fittingly bright with Niedzialkowski whoa-oh-oh-ing between verses lamenting the loss of youth. “Do you remember when young meant invincible,” she sings, and you melt.
